    December 6, 2014 - Well balanced, drinkable now but will keep a few years. OK acid, moderate tannin. Fruit v.g.
    Day 2: Better, raised to 91, not great QPR, wonderful fruit.

    September 3, 2014 - Very good wine. I'm guessing that many of these high alcohol Turleys would benefit from more time in the rack but I continue to have trouble waiting. Pleasant nose, very dark color and was good straight out of the bottle. Decant time didn't hurt but also surprisingly didn't help a ton either. I will say that even at the direct from winery price point, which isn't bad and is likely 50% off what you'd have to spend at retail, I don't think it is a bargain and believe there are some other zins out there that are as good or better. Maybe rack time changes that.
