The 1995 Zinfandel Black-Sears Vineyard, which has a northeasterly orientation on Howell Mountain, weighs in at 16.1% alcohol. Harvested on November 15 (because of the vineyard's cool climate elevation of 2400 feet), this is a fabulously rich, full-bodied, powerful Zinfandel. The deep saturated purple color and gorgeous, fragrant nose of black-raspberries, pepper, and spice are suggestive of a top vintage of Pomerol from Bordeaux's right bank. This wine is enormously rich, full-bodied, super-concentrated, with a creamy texture, and layers of glycerin-imbued, rich fruit. Its seductive power makes it one of the most hedonistic, dry, full-bodied Zinfandels I have ever drunk. It should continue to drink well for at least a decade, but who has the discipline to squirrel away a few bottles for that long? The 1995 Zinfandels are the products of extraordinary vineyards and genius winemaking - no doubt about it. (RP)
*Highly Recommended* This Turley Zin is characteristically intense and deeply concentrated, showing off complex cherry, berry and plum flavors, with distinct pepperlike and herbaceous accents, and a long, lingering aftertaste. Bravo. (JL)
