Wine Advocate 91 points - The noteworthy 2002 Aida Zinfandel (275 cases) comes across much like a Chateauneuf du Pape. Aged in American oak, this deep ruby/purple-tinged Zin reveals notes of Provencal herbs intermixed with freshly ground pepper, plums, cherries, and kirsch liqueur. It possesses excellent texture, a full-bodied palate, wonderful density, and a chewy, heady, hedonistic personality. Drink it over the next 4-5 years.

A serious effort, the 2002 Zinfandel displays some of the potential of its vineyard, which was made famous by Larry Turley of Turley Cellars. It is a broadly flavored, heady offering with plenty of alcohol, loads of body, character, and gorgeously intense, peppery, herbs de Provence-infused black cherry fruit.
