92 Points: 2017 Seven Generations

“Plush but not fat, this subtle and complex wine combines peach and vanilla flavors with fig, crushed rock and bright acidity. The creamy mouthfeel stays well balanced as lemon and crisp apple notes come forward on the midpalate and linger through the finish.”

90 Points: 2015 Six-Horse Zinfandel

“This full-bodied wine has a high ripeness factor and also a solid structure of fruit acidity and moderate tannins to nicely support the jammy raspberry and blackberry flavors that are so tempting.”

90 Points: 2015 Petite Sirah

“A touch of violet in the aroma is about the only delicate thing in this deeply colored, intense and tannic wine. It shows a spicy oak influence, and has the varietal’s usual inky hue, concentrated black-pepper and blackberry flavors and strong but well-integrated tannins. Best after 2023.”
