    February 14, 2021 - Opened and poured with pesto pasta. Delicious and ripe bramble, with some secondaries just starting to show through. Hoisin, blacks. Tiny bit of heat, but not toooo bad. Some classic zinny bramble on the nose. Nice offering. Day two under vacuvin...meaty, some licorice, iron notes on the nose, unctuous fruit, but not too flabby or too overboard....this gets close to the line but doesn't go overboard IMO. Flamboyant in an brooding sort of way.

    September 26, 2020 - Classic big Zin from Turley. Dark fruit, rich color. 15.6 ABV but smooth and fairly mellow. Ready to drink but should be good for a couple more years.

    July 5, 2019 - Dark crimson in color. 15.6% ABV. Soaring nose of jammy red fruits, licorice, kirsch and pepper. Big, full bodied Zinfandel with ample acidity. Plush, ripe and rich. Mostly well balanced. Raspberry liqueur, cherry compote and white pepper on the palate. Tremendous length on the finish. Modern, full throttle Zinfandel that paired brilliantly with BBQ chicken on the 4th of July. Best over the next 1-2 years.
