Medium purple with light ruby red accents. Spice is all over this baby from the jump. Black and white pepper, along with baking spices. Red fruits mingle with blackberry cobbler and cinnamon. Fresh cut grass and little traces of beautiful violets on the back end.
Incredibly dense and just plain lovely. Since this is a Turley we already know that this will not be an over the top syrupy fruit bomb mess. Where other Zins zig and zag, they continuously stay the course. Decadent and elegant, this has a lush mouthfeel and firm tannins. Highly concentrated but never in a bad way.
Cherries bat lead off on the robust palate with vanilla and more blackberries. Smoke, spice, and oak are present with moist soil. Wonderful new leather plays a back up role. Roasted coffee on the long finish. This is not a fruit forward Zinfandel unlike so many others. This is just delicious. — 4 days ago

This 4 year old Pinot Noir from Sonoma County is drinking very nicely now. Nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.
Fruit forward and easy drinking with a spicy finish. Fun wine and very tasty now. Alcohol is nicely integrated by now.
Will continue to drink nicely in the next 3 to 5 years.
Good right out of the bottle. I gave it a light chill and had it by the pool. Paired nicely with a Double cream Brie cheese.
100% Pinot Noir grapes from a Single Vineyard. A small production of only 92 cases. Aged in 30% new oak barrels.

Oldest Cinsault vineyard in California. Heard someone say the world but that seems like a reach. We do make great juice in California. Welcome to The Californian! — 3 days ago

Better with air.... slightly green, opening to ripe cranberry, blackcherry, and white pepper. Toasty. Plenty of life here. Luscious plum and berries, layered with vanilla bean and tobacco spice. Hold for 5 more years and enjoy. — 4 days ago
I’m trying to get more into Malbecs and this one sets the bar high. Dry on the palate with lots of pie spice and red berry. Tannic without being too dry for me. Perfect for a cool day in fall. — a day ago
Wonderful valley fruit that is expressing nicely. Dark fruit, cassis, fully integrated tannins, and hints of oak that make this wine sparkle! This is a winner and one worth exploring! — 4 days ago
