Next up was the '12 Turley Zinfandel 'Dusi Vineyard'. This one ratcheted up to the fruit bomb level. Big blackberry, licorice and spice aromas. Ripe, plush and juicy. Lengthy finish.

Let it breathe for a half hour and watch it come to life with some cheese. Rich fruity full bodied with such a nice elegance already.

Dark, blue fruits. Really extracted. Nice wine but a bit over the top for my taste...

Palate has some game, burnt Carmel, toasted nuts. Same on the palate with a persistence of olive. Unique among turleys offerings, fun to tinker with but not the all-star zin of their standard class.

Dark Raspberry and Blackberry Fruit with a healthy dose of Sandalwood on the nose initially. Very intense in fruit aromatics and dense on the palate, this wine is high octane and alcohol but still has some good character. Full bodied but not a whole lot of tannin to it. This is one to decant and let sit for a while and let the alcohol burn off a bit to see the true character.

This 2012 Turley Dusi Vineyard (whatever it says After the "expert review" that is what we were drinking) is absolutely delicious zin. I usually find zin pretty harsh, but this is softer and nice. Impressed.

Not as good as previous vintage. A bit hot. Still bold and lots of cherry and currant.
