93pts Stephen Tanzer
Stephen Tanzer: "Inky ruby. A complex bouquet presents dark fruit liqueur, licorice, violet and fruitcake, with a smoky overtone and a hint of black pepper. Stains the palate with sappy boysenberry and cherry-cola flavors that spread out on the back half and pick up a suave floral pastille nuance. Dusty tannins build through a sweet, strikingly persistent finish brightened by a vibrant, spicy jolt of peppery spices. I suspect that this will be the longest-lived of this year's set of zins here, but I don't think that it will take forever to unfold, either." May/Jun 2014

Winery:
"The 2011 Old Hill Zinfandel is a wine that is refined and reserved but also assertive. Generous spicy blackberry, raspberry, and mint aromas are underpinned by rich scents of cedar, rosemary, and vanilla. The palate is round, rich, and mouthfilling with a mix of red and black fruit and persistent mint flavors, balanced by soft, velvety tannins and a long, pleasant finish. This extremely alluring wine is attractive now, but will continue to get more interesting for many years."
