Representing the essence of Zinfandel, this wine boasts a dark saturated purple color, mind boggling fruit extract and concentration levels, compelling harmony and overall balance, particularly for a wine of such massive size, and a whoppingly long finish. The dominate characteristics are its blackberry/black raspberry/cherry liqueur-like flavors, voluptuous texture, and seamless integration of wood, alcohol, and acidity. I am not a great believer in the capability of Zinfandels to age, but this wine, although accessible now, should last well beyond a decade. Kudos to Turley! (RP)
*Cellar Selection* Here's a big, ripe mouthful of Zinfandel from a winery specializing in the variety. You can feel the energy in this seductive wine--dense, chewy and jam-packed with rich, concentrated plum, black cherry, blackberry and spice character. From a 90-year-old vineyard. (JL)
Jordan calls this one 'the closer'. Very dark ruby-red; slightly less vibrant color than the above. Knockout aromas of berries, vanilla, smoke, tobacco and gunflint; superripe but not raisiny. Velvety and tactile in the mouth; powerful but seamless. Very strong dark berry flavor. This fermented to dryness, according to Jordan, and in fact comes across as less sweet and more suave than a few of the above wines. Finishes with substantial but round tannins and a suggestion of earth. They don't make wine like this in France. (ST)
