(Turley's first zin from these vines, which were harvested between October 20 and November 15 in 2000) Medium red. Pungent aromas of peppery red fruits, complicated by herbal and resiny nuances; has the sweet/sour quality of a fruit tart. Tangy red berry flavors enlivened by harmonious acidity. Quite tightly wound and promising. Finishes with fine tannins and very good length. Showing well today. From a 1923 planting in a cool site. (ST)
The first Zinfandel from the Pesenti Vineyard vinified by Larry Turley and Ehren Jordan is the 2000. This old, 50-acre Paso Robles vineyard is planted on pure limestone (one of the few limestone vineyards in California). It carries 15.3% alcohol. The wine is structured, with surprisingly high acidity (the limestone effect), a deep ruby/purple color, graceful black currant and raspberry flavors, and hints of pepper, minerals, and spice. This elegant, European-styled Zinfandel is atypical compared to the other Turley offerings. (RP)
