"I was blown away by several bottles of this wine drunk on vacation in Maui. After spending three weeks in Asia tasting primarily French wines and Sake, they hit all the sweet spots on my palate. The finest effort yet from this vineyard, the 1996 is reminiscent of a phenomenal Chateauneuf du Pape. This wine continues to remind me of California's version of Henri Bonneau's Chateauneuf du Pape Reserve des Celestins. With an alcohol content just above 15.5%, this full-bodied, meaty, dark ruby/purple-colored wine reveals celestial aromas of smoked duck, Provencal herbs, and pepper. On the palate, intense layers of glycerin-imbued, super-rich, chewy levels of extract are sensational. It is a blockbuster, decadently rich Zinfandel to drink over the next 7-8 years." - Robert Parker, robertparker.com (Aug 30, 1998)
