Good bright red-ruby. Aromas of black cherry and crushed pepper show an almost exotic aspect. Offers compelling sweetness of black cherry and dark berry fruit allied with strong acidity and lifted by pepper and herb notes. Really tactile, sappy and penetrating right through to the pungent, very long finish. Classic young zinfandel for aging.
The 2011 Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard is rich, round and harmonious. Layers of expressive red fruit flow effortlessly to the inviting finish. The 2011 still needs to fully come together, but everything looks good so far. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. (AG)
Deeply structured and jammed with fruit, this offers aromas of briary wild berry and grilled fennel, with appealingly rustic and ripe dried cherry, mineral and smoky cracked pepper flavors. Drink now through 2021.
The 2011 Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard shows the weight and richness of Paso Robles. A big, explosive wine, the Pesenti is all about texture and volume. There is an immediacy in the Pesenti that is impossible to resist.
I absolutely loved this wine. Fabulously fruity nose. Spice and pepper and juicy and the alcohol doesn't show. That hint of orange too. Refined tannins, remarkably elegant and very persistent. Almost a Pinot nose with fragrant red fruit. Complex and so unexpectedly refined. I expected a bruiser and found elegance. Another Zin revelation. As Turley's own description says: 'The wines have a lightness and aromas unique to the site, with crushed-mineral and floral characteristics not normally seen in Zinfandel. 19/20 points. (JH)
