Perhaps the finest example yet made from Paso Robles, the 2008 Zinfandel Ueberroth Vineyard (a site planted in 1885) tastes like a Chapoutier Ermitage because of its liqueur of minerality. This vineyard’s chalky limestone soils have given the wine extraordinary definition, fabulous concentration, and a style that seems like a hypothetical blend of a great grand cru Burgundy with an outstanding wine from St.-Emilion’s limestone hillsides. This sensational 2008 needs 1-2 years of cellaring, and should keep for a decade thereafter. Black cherry, black currant, and crushed chalky notes along with terrific acidity and sensational concentration and depth are all present in this beauty. It’s good to see the Turleys exploit this vineyard to its maximum potential. (RP)
Bright deep red with ruby highlights. Urgent aromas of crushed berries, flowers, minerals, cedar and tobacco, all lifted by a peppery perfume. Bright, fresh, intense and penetrating, with tangy flavors similar to the aromas. This has all the major zin food groups. Finishes very long and spicy, with tannins perfectly supported by the wine's sheer flavor intensity. There's 15.9% alcohol here, but this wine carries it off effortlessly. Another topnotch result from this superb old-vines vineyard. (ST)
