Few other producers can equal what Larry Turley accomplishes with Contra Costa Zinfandel from the Duarte Vineyard. From ungrafted, ancient vines planted in pure sand (Turley says it looks like a beach), there are 400 cases of the powerhouse 2002 Zinfandel Duarte Vineyard (400 cases; 16.7% alcohol). Full-bodied and dense, with no hotness, but copious quantities of raspberries, blackberries, balsam wood, pepper, and Provencal herbs, this is a rich, layered, hedonistic turn-on. (RP)
Bright ruby-red. Pungent blackberry aroma complicated by espresso and exotic notes of apricot and peach; can't quite hide its alcohol. Chewy, thick and sweet but a bit musclebound, with firm acidity framing the chewy cherry and raspberry flavors. This will need a couple years of bottle aging. May merit a higher score if it can absorb some of its alcohol before it loses its fruit. (ST)
A big, ripe, effusively fruity style, with intense dusty wild berry, blackberry and dried currant flavors that firm up on the midpalate and show a tight core of cedary oak, finishing with ripe fruit, a touch of tar and herbal notes. (JL)
