89 points "The 2008 Zinfandel Juvenile, produced from a collection of lots from their youngest vines, is a delicious, forward Zinfandel with good black cherry and berry fruit, spice box, pepper, and roasted herb characteristics. Drink this medium to full-bodied, hedonistic offering during its first 2-3 years of life." Best -2012

89 points "Good bright medium red. Raspberry and spice aromas are lifted by orange zest, with a note of bitter chocolate coming up quickly; almost pinot-like. Then juicy, sweet and easygoing, with good definition to its dark fruit, spice and pepper flavors. Finishes with hints of licorice and herbs. A very good basic zinfandel bottling, and a solid value."
