Deep dark garnet color; still purple on the rim. A fairly brambly nose, with aromas of blackberry (prominent), raspberry, hints of blueberry, black pepper and spice. Flavors are much the same with a little pomegranate. Good structure. Tannins are not totally resolved, but not so much as to not appreciate the wine. Rich and somewhat powerful in the mouth. A decent finish. Paired well with pasta and Italian meat sauce.
peppery nose dominates at first, then the fruit kicks in. Nice big zin that did the job I expected it to do. I like Turley zins young, so this as about as old as I let one get, and it seemed like a nice age to be drinking it.
