For the second year in a row, Larry Turley has turned the dogs loose for the 2002 Zinfandel Dogtown Vineyard, the finest Zinfandel I have ever tasted from Lodi. This 750-case offering tips the scales at a whopping 16.5% alcohol, all of it well-hidden beneath extravagantly rich fruit. This deep ruby/purple-tinged Zin smells like brandy-macerated jammy black cherries intermixed with dried Provencal herbs, ground pepper, and other exotic spices. An exceptionally powerful, mouthfilling, palate staining effort with enormous richness and purity as well as a blockbuster finish, it is clearly not a Zinfandel for those who enjoy wimpy wines. (RP)
Medium-deep red. Slightly high-toned aromas of raspberry, dried herbs, exotic spices and smoked meat; offers lovely lift on the nose. Then dense, thick, fleshy and rich, with concentrated raspberry and spice flavors. (ST)
Ripe and zesty without being overblown or heavy. Delivers a racy streak of wild berry and blackberry fruit before turning tannic and chalky on the aftertaste. (JL, Web-2005)
