    September 6, 2014 - Still drinking wonderfully. Not pruney at all, like many of the zin's that I have had lately. Loved it.

    August 21, 2014 - Very good and predictable; not the best Old Vines I have had, but a reliable Turley Zin. Medium bodied; not very expressive for a Turley Zin. Nevertheless, very good and priced fairly.

    February 1, 2014 - Wow, what a surprise. I have a few bottles of Turley zins left and figured they are getting close to the end of their drinking window.
    This is a lower end Turley, so I wasn't expecting too much, boy was I wrong. Long, balanced, great taste with cherry initially and spice/pepper. Interestingly, the color was turning to a brickish brown color. Much better than my other two bottles of the old vines. It was so good I drank almost the whole bottle.
