The lightest colored Lodi Zin I've ever seen--Pretty in pink- raspberry preserve, bergamot, violets, hibiscus, Mexican chocolate on nose. Palate is just elegant, brilliant fruit but tons of floral impact, pleasant bit of cayenne spice. Opened up beautifully the second day with aromatics you could get lost in.

Kirschenmann is a new vineyard site in Turley's stable of single vineyard designate Zinfandels. Planted in 1915, the vines are seated in well-drained, silica-rich sandy soil. The 2013 is young, granted, but the potential is evident. Vibrant notes of raspberry compote, roasted black cherries, lilacs and incense float above more savory layers of roasted meat and cracked black pepper. Velvety and plush, with wonderful tension between acidity and concentration. Sample

This to me is the other face of Zinfandel, it's been tempered but not diluted, it has depth and complexity. Great black and red fruits with a earthy element not always found in California Zinfandel. The wine is rounded out with nice spice and good oak aging.

Sophisticated. As much so as a Zin can be. Bold but restrained and balanced.
