    October 18, 2014 - Amazing Zin with full dark fruit, great complexity on palate and long smooth finish.

    October 10, 2014 - This is everything I love about a Turley zin when consumed with food. Jammy nose gives way to dark fruits on the mid palate with pie spice. Light pepper accompanies the experience. Finish is a dalliance with the mid palate. Drank with grilled steak and pesto on the side.

    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.
