96 points Very limited new Turley Zin release. 94 Points Robert Parker: "Absolutely sumptuous, the Zinfandel Judge Bell Vineyard (planted in 1907) is another Amador County cuvée, coming in at 15.5% alcohol. This is a big, dark, full-bodied wine with expressive aromatics of sweet red, blue and black fruits, spice, a dash of pepper, a full-bodied mouthfeel, and Turley’s signature hallmark of purity and vibrant fruit nicely balanced by acidity and sweet tannin. Hedonistic, but also intellectually satisfying, this big, juicy Amador Zinfandel should drink well for 5-6 years."
A nice concentration of dark fruit and good acidity -- this is a great wine even by Turley's lofty standards
