Let it breath for a couple hours and consumed over 2 more. Has dropped a little color but the 2 hr car ride made sure all that fine sediment made for a cloudy pour. Very red fruited, a bit candied, acid a touch piercing and tannins fully resolved. Holding up quite well and really improved as the night went on. Starting to fade but still the best showing I have had yet from a 15 yr old Turley.
(Tasted at Turley's Spring Pickup Party) A 13-year-old Zin -- are you kidding? Granted, this was poured from magnum, but the freshness of this wine was amazing. Surely a rebuttal to those who say California Zins don't ever age. Lovely nose of blackberry liqueur and lilac, with a medium to full body and deep black pitted fruits on the palate. Fresh zesty acidity and a moderate finish. A real treat to taste an aged Zin.
