Outer quote mark (16.2% alcohol): Bright, deep red. Pungent aromas of black raspberry, pepper and herbs, lifted by a mineral note from the limestone-rich soil. Wonderfully intense and energetic, with a light touch that belies its substantial alcohol. Captivating flavors of blackberry, herbs and lavender saturate the palate. Boasts a superb balance of sugar, acidity and tannins. This is spectacularly aromatic today but should really be held for a few years. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

Outer quote mark The 2012 Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard is wonderfully lifted and precise, especially within the context of Paso Robles. Hints of licorice, anise and orange peel add gorgeous aromatic presence to a core of sweet red stone fruits. Already open and highly expressive, the Pesenti is another fabulous wine that will reward readers with a long and wide drinking window. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A zesty red, offering lots of character, with aromas of smoked cracked pepper and dark black cherry leading to layered, briary flavors of dried plum, black licorice and sage. Drink now through 2022. (TF) Inner quote mark (4/2015)
