“Classic” 95 Points 
“Aromas of ripe blueberries and vanilla fill waft from the glass of this dazzling ruby colored nectar. Harkening back to the classic Zinfandels that California made famous, it shows excellent balance and concentration of rich cherry compote and blackberry cobbler flavors melded together seamlessly with hints of vanilla cream, espresso and slightly spicy oak. This enjoyable wine is ready to drink now, and will cellar age gracefully over the next 3-5 years.” - California Wine Advisors
