93-95 points Robert Parker: "The 1997 Zinfandel Aida Vineyard (from 30-year old vines; 16.8% alcohol) is once again the Chateauneuf du Pape of northern California. This wine boasts an herbes de Provence, garrigue, peppery, black raspberry-scented, exotic nose that is eerily similar to a top-class Chateauneuf. The color is a saturated dark ruby/purple, and the wine unleashes its full power with layers of roasted meats, pepper, and jammy fruit flavors. This stunning Zinfandel will overload most tasters' olfactory sensors. Moreover, it should drink well for 7-8 years." (06/99) 90 pointts Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good ruby color. Syrupy blackberry, black cherry and gunflint aromas reminded me of grenache. Big, thick and superripe; slightly roasted Chateauneuf du Pape-like flavors betray some heat. But very concentrated." (May/June 99)
