Matt Steeves rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

There's no wonder why this Zinfandel is the No. 1 around the world! From the inaugural vintage back in the early 1980s to today, iconic Zin producer, known as the Godfather of Zin, Joel Peterson, has been crafting this uber popular Zin for a few decades now and it continues to grow in popularity given its ripe and robust style. Ravenswood doesn't produce 'wimpy' wines and this wine is proof of that! Enjoy with BBQ fare, pasta dishes, or spicy Asian cuisine. Highly recommended all year round. Tasted November 2015. 89+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

Shelley Harris rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A robust red wine with dark cherry and plum aromas and tastes, paired well with my appetizer of shrimp and goat cheese quesadillas and a side order of spicy salsa.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
