too hot, 15.9% alcohol and fruit can't shine. Not jammy, dark fruit and pencil lead

15.5% alcohol. Big, bold, concentrated, juicy, exuberant and somewhat thicker/viscous in texture with black raspberry, plum, kirsch, fig, spice box, and bramble aromas and flavors. This is a definite step up in quality from last year's so-so effort, and one that delivers above and beyond its sub $25 price point.

15.9% abv. Dark ruby. Expressive mostly dark fruit aromas. The palate is dominated by black cherry, bramble and black pepper. Excellent depth , focus and length. While the tannins are mostly resolved, this has years of life ahead. A nice showing from this iconic historic vineyard.

lovely aged zin. this is where i like Turley. very Rhone -like nose of red fruit, smoke, meat and herbs. mid is lush with sweet red cherry and touch of plum. leather with time and more earthy. long finish with a rustic touch. delicious. not a hint of heat on the palate (for a 16.5 wine!!)

Still bold and well balanced with sweet ripe black fruits and a nice vibrant streak. Dense but not heavy.

Lighter in color than I expected with garnet edges that made it look older that I expected. Nice red fruit nose, but was less fruity on the palate. Pepper, cedar, earth in addition to fruit. Well balanced but slightly thinner than many Turley Zins.

Deep red/purple color that stains the glass. Long legs. Very fruity nose with red/purple fruit. Big fruit-forward flavor on palate-raspberries, sweet cherry, plum. No rough edges to the wine. No doubt could have aged for another 5-10 years at least.

This bottle was Vinturi-decanted and shared at a July 4th barbeque. My impressions of 6/15/2015 were confirmed. The attendees loved the wine, which paired well with grilled New York strip steaks and filet mignon. Drink now-2017.

7/3/2015 - cultdrinker Likes this wine: 91 points

Nice tasty fruity spicy cuvee when approached slightly chilled (57-62 degrees); the cooler taste also effectively neutralizes (and otherwise eliminates) the so-called "acidity" that others have commented about). Enjoyed with filet wrapped in bacon. My tasting of the 2013 Turley (probably had about 12 to 15 bottles from this vintage, not all of which have been reported on this site by me) has consistently left me impressed. 2013 is one of the better vintages for Turley all around, with each separate bottling having something different than its sisters. Kudos to the Turley "family" for the way to present Zinfandel.

1999 Turley Petite Syrah Rattlesnake Acres

Napa Valley Petite Sirah more

7/3/2015 - StefanAkiko Likes this wine: 97 points

An elegant and muscular prodigal wine that ticked almost all of our boxes most gallantly. We especially enjoyed the combination of mature aromas and lashes of fresh fruit.

Very dark red with browning hues. A lot of very fine sediment, so decant at home if you bring to a tasting or dinner.

Nose started out oxidized, but it blew off. Lots of mature berries with yoga-body-distinction rather than Michelin-man-flaps.

On the palate, this wine rocked our socks off. We had expected an excellent wine and got an exceptional wine with bells and whistles. Full bodied yet sleek thanks to the acid backbone and still present tannins. Precision in its structural traits and explosive fruit that is far from jammy. The wonderful oak-treatment shines through well. All of this wine's parts are integrated.

This wine has everything in the right place, missing only some complexity and a tad more lift in the finish for a perfect score.

Wife: 98p

A fabulous marriage to tonight's umami-rich dinner at 2 star L'Effervescence (Tokyo).

herbs and juicy raspberries on the nose, dark and long, bright and strong acid backs this up, full and rich, dark berries, plum skins, liquorish and raspberries, long finish, spiced up, another well made zinfandel from the Turley 2013 portfolio, this one has a dark, spicy character, nice structure too
