    February 22, 2015 - This continues to be one of our favorite Turley Zins. Great nose of dark berries, cassis-like notes with that unmistakable eucalyptus/cedary overtone. Long finish. Excellent!

    January 26, 2015 - This one is a curiosity, a wine that's more teaser than something that delivers at this stage of its development. Difficult to determine where this will go. Air definitely helps. Right now this offering has a faint bouquet of dried flowers. The attack is bracing with acidity galore, which quiets down in midpalate, where plum and spice notes peek through. The action is all in the finish right now, with some nice secondary notes of tobacco leaf, grilled bread and earthiness. This could well be outstanding with more time, but it's hard to tell. Will save our remaining bottle until 2016.

    October 26, 2014 - This needs about 30 min of air to open, full bodied, a touch of alcohol mid way through, a bit disjointed still, should reach prime in 3-4 years, average value.

    April 25, 2014 - Dark ruby. Nose of graphite, blackberry, dark cherry, and pepper. Pleasantly rustic. Full and slightly hot in the mouth, but round and nicely focused. Medium length finish. A bit of peppery tannin on the back end.
