Turley Old Vines California Zinfandel 2014

$59

Very limited Turley Zinfandel. 91 Points Robert Parker:  "Another relatively big cuvée for Turley is their 2014 Zinfandel Old Vines (15.5% alcohol) that comes from bits and pieces of parcels that are impressive terroirs, but individually too small to bottle separately. Hence, they are blended together, yet represent vineyards between 41 and 130 years old! This juicy wine offers loads of raspberry and briary fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel, good purity, zesty acidity and ripe tannin. Layered and rich, it is a satisfying, lusty Zinfandel to drink over the next 4-5 years."

Big, bold, beautiful. Lush blackberry fruit, slightly plummy. Briary. Finish is rich, long, and creamy. And hot. You can feel the alcohol (15.5%!!!) but it’s not off-putting.

I don’t buy much Turley and have not for a couple of years but this brings me back. As “simple” as this may be, it’s terrific and a wonderful QPR. Next offer, I’m buying.

I bought this for my sister's birthday & I was happy she shared a taste with me. I would love to try the dogtown, the whitecoat or the amadeo. But I live in Vermont & I doubt I'll find any of those for sale up here.

Blackberry compote with some plum and vanilla flavors. Lush and full-bodied. It starts out with a bang but settles in nicely with a long, creamy finish. It’s Turley. Of course it’s going to be good.

Alcohol is a bit high, at 15.5%, but that wasn’t an issue when we paired this with Jamaican jerk chicken. Delicious.

Really enjoyed this. Has enough spice to keep you interested and fit with a variety of dinner pairings. Bramble berry and licorice are dominant. Could drink well for a few more years.
