93 • Midnight 2010 Estate, Zinfandel, Paso Robles.
Bold black raspberries and dried sour cherry aromas and flavors with mineral notes come on in a big way and a hint of sweet vanilla. Big flavors follow with a lightly peppered finish with chewy coating tannins. An excellent example of fruity finesse with high alcohol. (tasted on Feb-25-2013)
91 • Maroon Wines 2009 Reserve, Single Vineyard, Zinfandel, Napa Valley $60. Cellar Selection.
Warm nose reminiscent of a creamy mocha latté, herbs, and enticing blue fruits. Nice balanced flavors follow - not a zin that hits you over the head, but goes for and achieves subtlety. Some turned earth, raisin and a touch of pepper in the finish. Will be even better in a few years. (tasted on Feb-25-2013)
90 • Brian Arden 2009 Burton Ranch Vineyards, Zinfandel, Lake County $32.|Find-a-Wine|
Bright notes of boysenberry compote, a touch of mocha, cream and minerality. Flavors are a tangy and chewy with firm tannins on the finish. Nice structure and fruit for the table. Pair with pork loins. (tasted on Feb-25-2013)
