VinoUS Media Review
Rated 94
The 2016 Zinfandel East Bench is supported by bright acids that give the wine the tension and energy that are typical of Dry Creek. Primary sweet red and purplish berry fruit notes are pushed forward in this vibrant, beautifully delineated pure Zinfandel. Readers may want to cellar the 2016 for a few years, as it is tightly wound today, but all the elements are impeccably balanced. The East Bench abuts the Syrah block at Lytton Springs. Put simply: what a wine! (Antonio Galloni)

Wine Advocate Review
Rated 92
The 2016 Zinfandel East Bench offers up classic aromas of blackberry, cherry pit, warm spices and licorice. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, with velvety tannins, an ample core of succulent fruit and lovely balance. Generous and structurally open-knit, this is already delicious, but it should be well worth following for the next 8 years or more. Drink 2018-2026.

Jeb Dunnuck Review
Rated 91
Coming from the Dry Creek Valley in Sonoma and made from 100% Zinfandel, the 2016 Zinfandel East Bench is a classic, perfumed, elegant example of this variety. Black raspberries, blueberries, incense, peppery spice, and potpourri notes all emerge from the glass and it's medium-bodied, nicely balanced, and seamless on the palate, with a tight, elegant texture that keeps you coming back to the glass. Give bottles a year or two and it should keep for a decade.”

Wine Spectator Review
Rated 90
Offers an appealing briary structure, accented by bright cherry, smoky dill and pepper flavors that linger on the crisp finish. Drink now through 2024.

Wine Tasting Notes
Blackberry, cocoa licorice on the nose. Full-bodied palate with fig and plum fruit, chalky tannins, mineral and chaparral notes on the finish.
