" 91 points Robert Parker! (10/03)Our notes - In this warm year with its scant spring rains, the York Creek vines again reached "Late Picked" levels. Ridge worked closely with their growers to harvest at full flavor, but more moderate ripeness. For the third consecutive year, York Creek went beyond that. To add structure to the very ripe zinfandel, they have included a major amount of petite sirah. A third of the wine was aged in new and one-year-old air-dried American oak barrels, and the rest in similar, tempered oak. Chalky tannins behind the rich fruit of this massive wine assure its continuing development. Enjoyable now, it will be at its best over the next five to seven years. 78% zinfandel, 20% petite sirah and 2% carignane"
