. . . the 2002 Zinfandel Dragon emerges from a Howell Mountain Vineyard. It is a 325-case cuvee that came in at 16.2% alcohol. With a deep ruby/purple color as well as exotic aromas of blue and black fruits intermixed with white flowers and ground pepper, this distinct, rich, medium to full-bodied, concentrated Zinfandel admirably combines power with elegance.
Loads of pepper and tobacco in the aroma, with firm, tightly wound blackberry and wild berry fruit that's supported by firm acidity and tannins. Finishes with a pretty flash of toasty oak.
Bright ruby-red. Powerfully peppery aromas of raspberry, cherry and licorice. Densely packed and chewy, with its strong peppery element giving it a markedly drier impression than most of the other 2002 Turley zins. Very uncompromising, steely wine that's not yet expressing itself. 90(+?) points
