    "This is just what Zinfandel should be!" ~ Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

    "One of the many standouts in this range, the 2017 Zinfandel Giuseppe & Luisa is fabulous." ~ Antonio Galloni's Vinous

    Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "Medium ruby-purple, the 2017 Zinfandel Giuseppe and Luisa has a wonderful nose of yellow peach preserves, apricot, boysenberry jam, cinnamon stick and warm black fruits—there are loads of fruity and spicy layers here. In the mouth, it's medium to full-bodied with intense tricolored fruits, firm, grainy tannins and very juicy acidity, finishing long and peachy. This is just what Zinfandel should be! 966 cases produced. Drink date: 2020 - 2035." Apr 2019

    Antonio Galloni's Vinous: "One of the many standouts in this range, the 2017 Zinfandel Giuseppe & Luisa is fabulous. The purity of the flavors is remarkable. Bright red cherry, blood orange, mint and wild flowers are all beautifully delineated in a racy, textured Zinfandel that delivers the goods big time. All the elements meld together effortlessly. Drinking window: 2020 - 2032." May 2019

    Winery: "Our 2017 Giuseppe & Luisa Zinfandel has aromas of strawberry, raspberry, white peach and clove. On the palate it is juicy with Bing cherry and spices, followed by a strawberry-cream finish."
