Well oaked, with lots of smoky, toasty flavors, but the fruit stands right up to it, with ripe cherry, raspberry and plum notes. Complex, flavorful aftertaste. Drink now through 2003. (5/1999) 

Robert Parker

This is an exceptionally powerful (16.1% alcohol) Zinfandel. The dark garnet-colored 1997 Zinfandel Old Vines reveals a heady, peppery, Provencal-styled bouquet reminiscent of a Bandol or Cotes de Provence. Well-made in a burly, hefty style, with full body and copious, spicy wood in the jammy strawberry, cherry, and raspberry fruit flavors, it should be drunk over the next 2-3 years. (11/1999)
