Turley Rattlesnake Ridge Zinfandel 2013

$75

Very limited Turley Zinfandel.94 Points Robert Parker:  "Turley’s Zinfandel Rattlesnake Ridge is impressive. Dense, rich and powerful, the 2011 is beautifully crafted, with great balance of fruit, acidity and structure. Layers of black currants, sweet tobacco and tar are layered into the vibrant, nuanced finish. This vivid Zinfandel should drink well pretty much upon release, but also has the stuffing to develop beautifully in bottle. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2021...This is a thrilling set of wines from Larry Turley, Ehren Jordan and Tegan Passalacqua."

This truly is an awe inspiring wine. Big and bold as is typical of Turley but the 13 rattlesnake ridge Zin is in a league of its own. Lots of slathered blueberry but also has a flavor profile that can be best described as an old school Grenache based chateauneuf du pape. Just a beautiful wine.

Perhaps a disjointed phase? Consumed over multiple days: SPICE-forward the first, alcohol dominant, the second. Debating day 3 now...
