Consistently spectacular in the capable, meticulous winemaking hands at Turley Cellars, the 2013 Zinfandel Ueberroth Vineyard comes from one of the oldest Zinfandel vineyards in California (planted in 1885). The ungrafted, head-trained vines from steep limestone slopes just down the road from Justin Smith’s Saxum Winery have produced a monster and a fascinating Zinfandel in 2013. Coming in at 15.8% alcohol, the wine displays deep black raspberry and black cherry fruit, hints of crushed rock, and fresh acidity that is no doubt attributable to the pH of the limestone soils. The wine, in spite of its relatively lofty alcohol, comes across as remarkably elegant, concentrated, and stunningly proportioned. This full-bodied tour de force in Zinfandel winemaking should drink well for a decade or more. (RP)
The 2013 Zinfandel Ueberroth Vineyard is the most complete of Larry Turley's Paso Robles wines. A host of dark red cherry, mocha, plum, spice and licorice notes build in the glass as the Ueberroth shows off its old-vine pedigree and explosive, virile personality. Absolutely nothing it is out of place. Once again, the Ueberroth makes a compelling case for the virtues of head-trained Zinfandel in Paso Robles. Readers who like exuberant, flashy wines will love the 2013. (AG)
This potent red is loaded with personality, featuring aromas of smoky black raspberry and licorice that open to complex, dense flavors of dried cherry, cracked pepper beef and grilled herb. The tannins are big and framed by loamy mineral details. *Top 100 Wines of 2016* (TF)
