92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium to deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Zinfandel Rockpile Ridge Vineyard features notes of baked plums, blackberry tart and forest floor over nuances of stewed rhubarb, tar and raisin cake. Medium to full-bodied, the palate reveals plenty of earth and savory layers, framed by chewy tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long.

91 points Wine Spectator

Dynamic, if still a bit young and tight, offering compelling briary cherry, dusty sage and white pepper flavors that finish with refined but spirited tannins. Best from 2019 through 2024.
