Turley Zinfandel ‘Old Vines’ 2006


Jammy boysenberry, ripe red cherry and purple plum with hints of dried apricot, graphite, sumac and bay. Satin texture and moderately complex. Sufficiently balanced to mask an outsized 15.4% alcohol. Big, muscular and a bit in your face. More brawn than brains, this, but there’s enough upstairs to have a conversation. A very good wine. (Reviewed 10/30/11)
