2014 Turley Zinfandel Juvenile

Estate: Turley Wine Cellars

Region: California, United States of America


Tasting Note:June 13, 2016

Second wine for the flank steak and a real heavy hitter. Deep crimson red and purplish edges. An overload of spices, both dark and warm. Some smoked mesquite too. Slight heat on day one but wore off on day two. Moderate tannins (7/10) and moderate plus bodied. Almost full bodied. Lots of dark berries, forest floor and slight minerality in the finish. Minerality wore off on day two and the jammy texture really came through. Dry and long finish. Great value wine and excellent zinfandel.

The Juvenile Zinfandel from Turley Wine Cellars is comprised of a variety of young vines that have been replanted on old vine sites. The age of the vines ranges from 6 years to 25 years old and come from the 18 best vineyards across California.
