Wine Advocate 93 - The last of the Heritage mixed black blends is the 2014 Lorenzo’s Heritage from Dry Creek. This has a boatload of Zinfandel in it, but then of course, there’s the telltale Carignan, Petite Sirah, Alicante Bouschet, Cinsault, Peloursin, and Valdiguié. Abundant Chinese black tea, spring flowers, blueberry and blackberry are all present in this soft, round, juicy, succulent and heady wine. This is a sexy, front-end loaded wine to drink over the next 5-7 years.
Wine Spectator 91 - Dark and brooding, this takes time to reveal itself. Aromas of dried cherry, bitter chocolate and orange zest open to concentrated, rich flavors of blackberry, licorice and dark Asian spices. Burly tannins frame the finish. Zinfandel and mixed blacks. Best from 2018 through 2027.
Amazing purple color. Raspberries, darker berries, moderate tannins, and enough acidity to go around. Almost brooding. Red fruit, warm spice, and herbal nuances surface on a medium/full frame. But again the fruit is rather subtle, which is not a bad thing; it draws you in to appreciate what lies beneath.
