89 points "From the sandy soils of Contra Costa, the well-made 2005 Zinfandel Duarte reveals plenty of fruit, power, and richness. It should turn out to be outstanding once it has been bottled. " Best 2006-

88 points "The ripe, slightly rustic side of this Zinfandel is balanced by a focused beam of complexity. Smoky, meaty aromas blend with ripe cherry, leading to rich, zesty flavors of licorice, cedar and pepper. Drink now." Best 2007-
