WS 88 WE 88 Pts - According to Wine Spectator - "Dusty raspberry and spice aromas pair with ripe flavors of dried cherry, black licorice and jerky. Drink now through 2018."
According to Wine Enthusiast - "This is a great wine for fans of the flashy, almost sweet, dark colored and fully oaked style of Zin. It has a tasty sense of maple syrup on waffles, boysenberries and vanilla. Full-bodied and concentrated, it’s firm in texture and slightly sweet on the finish."
Winemaker Notes - "Our Old Vine Zinfandel comes from vines with an average age of 85 years. On the nose, aromatics black raspberry, cedar shavings are paired with pepper and spice.
