    August 9, 2014 - Sour cherries, blackberries, plum and spice.

    Great body and depth with a hours of air. Pleasantly intense. Has another 2-4 years left in it.

    August 8, 2014 - This has shed much of the aggressiveness we found at its earlier stage and has settled down into a tasty, food-friendly offering. Dark plum-purple with a thick robe in the glass; bouquet of black raspberries, followed by more raspberries and some nice rosemary and lavender highlights that follow through in the finish. Always one of our favorite Turley offerings. I'd venture this isn't at its peak yet. Drink 2015-2018.

    April 19, 2014 - Drank both the '09 and '10; both were excellent. The '09 had more spice and intensity; the '10 was softer and more reserved. Both had good fruit and flavor. The '09 finish was a bit longer. I drank the '11 several nights ago and felt its intensity matched to '09.

    April 15, 2014 - 1 hr decant, slightly chilled. Clear, deep dark purple color, long stained legs. Fairly massive Zin with high extraction but great integration at this point in time. Proper flavor profile, big body, sharp finish. Drink now through 2016. Nothing off.

    March 30, 2014 - Big soft plummy mouthful. Moderate persistence on finish but not in league with more special Turley efforts. I would also opt to drink this wine sooner rather than later.
