96 Points - new One of Paso Roble's up-and-coming Superstars. Turtle Rock is a new label from Don Burns, assistant winemaker at SAXUM. Limited. 96 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "Composed of 58% Grenache, 27% Syrah, 11% Mourvèdre, and 4% Tempranillo, the 2017 Willow's Cuvee offers a complex, exotic bouquet of red plums, raspberries, licorice, ground pepper, and loads of floral notes. Rich, medium to full-bodied, pretty, and elegant, it's another beautiful wine from this estate to drink over the coming decade... ...There are few estates in California today that are more exciting than Don Burns’ Turtle Rock. Pulling from some of the top vineyards on the westside of Paso Robles and making the wines as Justin Smith’s Saxum estate, Burns has consistently produced some of the wines of the vintage since his first releases in 2014. As I wrote in the past, readers interested in finding the next up and coming superstar in Paso Robles need to put Don and Claudia Burns’ Turtle Rock estate at the top of their list."
