Wine Enthusiast 91 points - Zesty in black pepper and luscious in blackberry, blueberry and raspberry, the grapes are from 90-plus-year-old hillside vines. Complex and structured, it offers a balanced point of view and plenty of intrigue, simultaneously fresh and brooding.
Wine Spectator 88 points - Firm and tightly wound, with ripe raspberry and spicy sage aromas. The cherry fruit flavors are framed by big briary tannins. May bloom in time. Drink now through 2022. 6,674 cases made.-TF

Wine Advocate 90 points - The 2012 Zinfandel Old Vine (over 90 years in age) includes 23% Petite Sirah. Always a winner, this full-throttle, full-bodied wine is dark plum in color, with spicy blackberry and raspberry notes intermingled with pepper and bouquet garni. The finish is long and heady. Anticipated maturity: now-2021. (Dec 2014)
