Mature in the sense that it is rounded and very polished. Red licorice and raspberry jam...Great grip and youthful. This wine is very alive with no apparent wrinkles...Good to go for another 5 years easy...This bottle had some mildew mustiness in it that I did not factor into the score because it was probably a storage issue...The wine under the must was fantastic!
(Tasted at the Turley Pickup Party) Initially light and tight for a Turley Petite Syrah. But after some coaxing in the glass, this offering comes through like a freight train. Bright ruby red with nice legs, it coats the mouth with some still-abundant tannins, although my sense is they're softening. Flavors of plums, honeydew melon and Asian spices. Finishes a bit gritty. Interesting wine from a historic old vine vineyard. I'd give this another decade before pulling the plug on another bottle. Drink 2024-2033?
Popped at 53 degrees and left in the bottle for about 30 minutes. Then poured. Purple and inky in the glass, with pleasurable scents of plum, blackberry and other dark fruit. Long pronounced dark legs. Smooth jammy tastes of ripe fruit with eathy and cola overtunes, when tasted at 65 to 67 degrees (to my palate and on the basis of my regular drinking of Turley since about 1997, Turley is best when drank slightly chilled). 60 second plus aftertaste. I last tasted this wine about 1 1/2 years ago and it is only getting better. Can't wait to see how it pairs with my burgers and fries.
