Ratings & Reviews

90 Points & "Best Buy" -
Wine & Spirits Magazine (2008 vintage):
"Bob Ponzo's vineyard at the northern edge of the Russian River Valley includes a block of zin and petite from 1952, the core of this wine. The vines are cooled by the fog incursion that drifts upriver, though not as much as the pinot noir vineyards deeper into the valley and closer to the sea, Fat black cherry and tart strawberry flavors balance this wine's equally huge tannins, leaving a tail of red spice in the end. Leave it in a decanter for several hours while you marinate a butterflied leg of lamb." - Joshua Greene (10/2010)

90 Points - California Grapevine (2008 vintage):
"Medium to medium-dark ruby; attractive, intense, herbal, stemmy, briary, peppery, very ripe raspberry and boysenberry fruit aroma; full body; big, intense, highly extracted, briary, peppery, dark berry fruit flavors with good depth and a bit of tartness on the finish; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Very highly recommended. 15.1% alcohol; 2,208 cases; blended with 2% Petite Sirah (PS); released April 2010." - Nicholas Ponomareff (04-2010)
