    November 25, 2016 - Spicy and fruity. While I did decant for a couple hours, it was terrific when I first opened it. Detected absolutely no tannins and could drink this all night, if only it was a bottomless bottle.

    September 8, 2016 - Bit unremarkable. Good zin, but no wow. Turley's 2011's have been one of my least favorite vintage from them. This was a red fruit core, bit sweet and crushed berry nose. Drink now.

    August 19, 2016 - Drankthewholebottle said it perfectly. Slightly on the sweet side for a Turley.

    March 3, 2016 - Cloudy maroon soft and plush looking. Smells like summer fruit salad and cookie dough. Ripe ass strawberries driven by mineral attack and leavening behind a plump finish of nice ripe plum and bramble. The saved half bottle was still good on day two.

    September 28, 2015 - This a denser, firmer wine than some Turleys; dark color, moderate spice; high alcohol feel even on day 2; nice complexity and finish.
