Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: 92 points

(17.3% alcohol): Bright ruby. High-pitched red and dark berry scents are complicated by floral oils, Asian spices and minerals. Deeply pitched but showing unlikely vivacity to its sweet black raspberry and floral pastille flavors thanks to tangy acidity. Fine-grained tannins sneak in late on the clinging finish, with the floral and spice notes repeating.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 92 points

At the same potency level as the Giuseppe & Luisa, the 2012 Zinfandel Vellutini Ranch exhibits abundant notes of licorice, Christmas fruitcake, Asian spices, mulberries, black cherries and blackberries, a full-bodied, viscous mouthfeel, and a long finish. Drink now-2025+.
