Turley has always excelled with high-elevation sites on Howell Mountain. From a site at 2,600 feet, the 2014 Zinfandel Rattlesnake Ridge (15.6% alcohol) is a beauty, with floral notes intermixed with cool, bluish fruits, raspberry, forest floor and spice all present in this dense, ruby/purple wine that cuts a broad swath across the palate. Like all of these wines, despite the high-octane alcohol, there is not a sense of heaviness or burn. This is beautiful, pure, rich, multidimensional Zinfandel to drink over the next 7-8 years. It is a beauty. (RP)
The 2014 Zinfandel Rattlesnake Ridge is a bit more immediate than the Dragon, which is literally right across the street. Red-fleshed stone fruits, tobacco, cedar and herbs open up first. Silky, polished tannins add to an impression of creaminess and finesse. The Rattlesnake is surprisingly gracious, but its balance is beyond reproach. (AG)
A plush version, offering an elegant, complex core, with aromas of wild flowers and raspberry leading to rich, supple flavors of plump cherry, licorice and smoky mineral. (TF)
