2013 Juvenile Zin. Blended from 15 vineyards, but nothing over 25 years old. Big, raspberry, currant, cinnamon aromas. Taste is more restrained with currant, blackfruit, and a mineral edge. Tastes cooler than its 15.4% self.

Perfect example of a Zinfandel. Fruity despite the age, a bit aggressive on the tongue but a long clean finish

Wow, going to need to get some of this wine. Less than $30. Silky smooth with intense fruit (raspberry, blueberry) and a cinnamon and pepper finish. Highly recommend as a daily drinker

Turley's 2013 "Juvenile" Zinfadel, drawn from grapes from new vines all over California and blended to create an easy going Zin that feels big right of the bat with intense fruit, black pepper and bit of herbs, but calms quickly without too many tannins. Mild smokiness; decant and wait a bit.

A nose that reminds me of burning marshmallows! Jammy red fruit on the palate.
