The 1995 Zinfandel Aida Vineyard (16.2% alcohol) is the finest Zinfandel Turley has yet produced from this terroir. More than any other Turley Zinfandel, this wine possesses a southern Rhone / Provencal / garrigue (that herbes de Provence, earthy concoction) personality that jumps from the glass. The color is a deep, dense, murky garnet. Jammy black-cherries, kirsch, strawberries, pepper, and earth make for one of the most complex smelling Zinfandels I have ever experienced. In the mouth, the wine is phenomenally rich, with no sense of flabbiness, high alcohol, or pruniness. It is an extraordinary, full-throttle Zinfandel that should be a benchmark for future Aida Vineyard Zinfandels. The wine's sumptuousness and low acidity suggest immediate drinkability, but this wine's massive richness indicates it will keep for 8 or more years. (RP)
Smooth, dark, rich and polished, with a supple core of coffee, spicy oak, currant and wild berry flavors. Finishes with an unusual dried fruit accent, a prunelike edge. (JL)
