  • A great producer of course. At 14 years this remains dark powerful and based on this bottle has plenty of life left. Old vines (1920's) and it shoes. Deep flavours, real length. , great nose. Tremendous.

  • Found in the cellar. Tried with BBQ ribs. Did not decant. Faded at opening, lost life after an hour. Little fruit and an off finish. Not corked, but just past its time.

  • Dinner with Karen and Eric at Il Fornaio, Carmel. Tasted against the Linne Calodo Cherry Red, which made for tough competition. An almost 10-year-old Zin that sends out a rebuttal to those who think Turleys -- or Zins -- don't age well. This was very tasty, with the years having sanded off the corners of this always dependable wine. A bit funky out of the bottle, but then the fruit blooms, with blackberries and ripe cranberries making appearances, with fresh black licorice bringing up the rear. A little heat in the finish, and throwing some sediment. The label notation reminds us this was bottled the year of the big Paso Robles area earthquake (6.5 Richter) in which many wineries (incl. Turley) lost quite a few barrels and bottles. Glad this one survived.

  • Strong beets, licorice, and tar on the nose. On the tongue, fairly aged yet quite soft, with a little tannin residue but not enough to overpower the blackberry/licorice mouthfeel.

  • Lots of beets, licorice, and tar on the nose. On the tongue, soft, fairly aged but still a little tannin. Good fruit but not too bold, and very little aftertaste or lingering in the throat.
