The 2012 Zinfandel Judge Bell Vineyard is the most textured and layered of Turley's three Zinfandels from Amador County. Sweet spices, leather and dark red cherries all blossom through the mid-palate and finish in a succulent, juicy Zinfandel with tons of near and medium-term potential. (AG)
(15.9% alcohol; from a vineyard planted in 1907): Captivating, complex perfume of musky raspberry, coffee, sage and wild herbs; communicates an impression of garrigue (this vineyard is actually surrounded by open land). At once dense and juicy, with lovely purity and a high pitch to its briary red berry, herb and spice flavors. Strong acidity accentuates the impression of dryness. Finishes juicy, tight and complex, with firm dusty tannins. A rather Old World style, and with considerable potential for improvement in bottle. 92+ points. (ST)
The 2012 Zinfandel Judge Bell emerges from a specific block of the Story Vineyard in the Shenandoah Valley. These head-trained, dry-farmed vines were planted in 1907. Lots of boysenberry, black cherry, pepper and earthy notes emerge from this big, rich, full-bodied, delicious Zinfandel. (RP)
