90pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2018 Zinfandel Duarte has a deep ruby-purple color and bombastic aromas of dried coconut, turned earth, chocolate and lush black fruits. The palate is medium-bodied but firmly framed, with rustic flavors, good freshness and an uncomplicated finish.
An engaging nose of sun-ripened peach skin with tones of dark blue fruits & flowers as well. The palate is teeming with ripe berries and stone fruits, with the Duarte’s signature suave, mouth-watering texture. Excessively easy to drink immediately, the wine showed stellar from the very first pour.
