wow. opened with a hint of oxydative aromas but quickly blew off to reveal soy, mushroom, caramel and cherry. mid is still ripe with cherry and a hint of balsamic, savory and luxurious mouthfeel, fully resolved. sour cherry with a hint of burned sugar on the finish. with time - the nose developed more floral qualities. mature but in no danger! excellent!
lovely aged zin. this is where i like Turley. very Rhone -like nose of red fruit, smoke, meat and herbs. mid is lush with sweet red cherry and touch of plum. leather with time and more earthy. long finish with a rustic touch. delicious. not a hint of heat on the palate (for a 16.5 wine!!)
