The 2017 Zinfandel East Bench, made from 100% Zinfandel aged 12 months in 10% American oak, has a medium ruby color and is scented of violet, lilac, warm peaches and yellow apricot with wet clay, dust, red and black cherries, bramble fruit and notions of dried herbs and earth melted right into all that fruit. Medium to full-bodied, it has wonderful earth-tinged fruits in the mouth with chalky, integrated tannins and juicy acidity, finishing long and layered. A more serious expression. Erin Brooks, Robert Parker Wine Advocate

The 2017 Zinfandel East Bench is bold and forward, with all of the intensity of Dry Creek very much in evidence. Super-ripe dark cherry, plum, leather, licorice, spice and chocolate all race out of the glass. The East Bench is always extroverted in style, as it is once again in 2017. Antonio Galloni, Vinous
