A stunning effort, the 2003 Zinfandel Rattlesnake Ridge (a 350-case cuvee with 15% alcohol) comes from a vineyard adjacent to the Howell Mountain Black Sears Vineyard that the Turleys made so famous. From volcanic soils with a lot of iron and compressed ash, known in California as “tufa,” this is another Rhone Valley-inspired wine offering notes of garrigue, pepper, earth, and kirsch liqueur. Dense and full-bodied with loads of fruit and a cool climate character, it should drink well for 5-6 years or longer. (RP)
Red-ruby. Superripe aromas of red fruits, black plum, chocolate, spice cake and earth. Dense, thick and supersweet, but kept firm by an edge of acidity. flavors of dried fruits are supplemented by a peppery quality on the back end. Finishes with substantial chewy tannins and very good length. (ST)
