(2005 Vintage) #67 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2008 "Dense and powerful, yet wonderfully rich, supple and well-structured at the core. Offers aromas of blackberry, fresh loamy earth and smoky toast, with ripe yet focused wild berry, mocha-espresso and white pepper flavors. Drink now through 2012. 950 cases made. Wine Spectator 93 Points
International Wine Cellar(2005 Vintage) Good full ruby. Briary dark raspberry, plum syrup, mocha, dried sage and white pepper on the aromatic nose. Big and lush yet fairly suave for zinfandel, with briary dark fruit and spice flavors and a fleshy, pliant texture. This one benefits from an excellent acid/tannin backbone.
