¡Feliz día de los muertos!
Time to scare the dead back to the beyond.
A wine from gnarled Vince’s should do the trick.
Smells of gun powder tea.
decanted for 4 hours, and the fruit is lush with dark ripened berries, and heavy handed spices. the burn will not blow off so one must integrate it into the tasting. High octane.
Expensive for a Zin, yet so well crafted, as we know Turley does.
The lingering acids seething with the alcohol burn. Enjoyable still.

This was a great wine for tonight. Interesting and brought plenty of spice and fruit. We bought half a lamb at the rodeo this year, so when wife decided to make lamb stew, this became a great pairing. Yum!

Tasty entry level bottling from turley - brambly Red and black fruits, minerals, dried florals, herbs, strawberry. Not heavy, silky.

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
