*eRobertParker.com #223 – March 2016, 89pts“From Lake County, the 2013 Zinfandel Old Vine Burton Ranch exhibits supple tannins, terrific raspberry and black cherry fruit, a soft succulence, and a round, juicy mouthfeel. This is a pretty and classy Zinfandel for drinking over the next 4-5 years.”
*Examiner.com Feb 1st, 2015 “The Burton Ranch Zin is a lush exciting Zin with rich dark colors and flavors of cherry pie, raspberry, clove and pepper leading to a long finish”
Light honey in color with wonderful similarities to the 2013 Hyde Semillon. The 2014 Hyde Semillon exhibits aromas of crisp lemongrass and honeysuckle with flavors of stone fruit, with a slightly fuller mid-palate than the previous year. The wine is wonderfully balanced with crisp acidity that provides for a seamless and complete finish.
The 2012 vintage can easily be described as potentially the best of the past decade. A nearly perfect flowering and fruit set in the spring along with warm yet moderate summer temperatures resulted in a harvest with wonderful balance and yields from the vines. Campbell’s Vineyard Pinot Noir reveals itself with a richness of purple color and subtle aromas of dark fruits and cola on the nose. The mouth feel is complex with layers that reveal a food friendly finish.

Dark ruby purple in color the Bacigalupi Vineyard Petite Sirah exhibits Blackberry and Black Cherry on the nose followed by a mouthful of exotic spice and a touch of black pepper. This is a very balanced full bodied wine with elegant tannins on the finish.
Black cherry in color with garnet hues. These 60 year old head trained vines produced an elegant and approachable yet powerful zinfandel with strawberry & rhubarb on the nose and a black cherry earthiness on the palate. The tannins are well integrated allowing for a finish that lingers and excites.
Dark ruby with hints of magenta in color. This Zinfandel block in the Pritchett Peaks Vineyard is a bright fruit forward example of Zinfandel exhibiting black cherry and cola on the nose followed by subtle hints of anise and currant. The wine finishes with notes of alpine cedar.
