94 points Robert Parker: "[$40 list] Medium to deep garnet-purple, the 2015 Zinfandel Old Vine offers a beguiling nose of crushed blueberries, Black Forest cake and crème de cassis with hints of dried roses, licorice, incense and tilled soil. Full-bodied, rich and with wonderful purity, it has an amazing frame of ripe, grainy tannins and plenty of freshness, finishing long and perfumed. Drink: 2018-2030. (Jun 2018)"

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "[$40 list] Plums, blackberries, cedary spice, and peppery herb notes all emerge from the 2015 Zinfandel Old Vine, a straight-up classic expression of this variety. More tobacco and cigar notes develop with time in the glass. It's medium to full-bodied, has plenty of tannins, and is beautifully balanced. It will keep for a decade. (6/5/18)"

93 points Wine Spectator: "[$40 list] Thoroughly old-school, offering briary cherry aromas and evocative raspberry, cracked pepper and dusty sage flavors that finish with zesty tannins. Drink now through 2026. (6/15/18)"

93 points James Suckling: "This mid-weight blend of 84% zinfandel, 7% petite sirah, 7% alicante bouschet and 2% mataro has a brambly, dark-berry nose with some purple flowers in the mix. The sleek palate has such freshness and the tannins are striking for their polish and finesse. Drink or hold. (12/12/19)"

92 points and 'Very highly recommended,' California Grapevine: "Medium-dark purplish ruby; attractive, forward, intense, brambly, raspberry and blackberry fruit aroma with spicy notes and hints of licorice, black pepper, and mocha; full body; rich, ripe textured, cedary, briary, red and black fruit flavors with good depth and concentration, and hints of licorice and green olive; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Enjoyable to drink now, though best to bottle age for two to four more years. 14.8% alcohol; blended with 7% Petite Sirah and 1% Alicante Bouschet; released September 2017. (Mar 2018)"
