Black cherry, plum, licorice, spice, menthol are all pushed forward in this succulent, expressive old vine Zinfandel from Turley. Floral and spiced notes add a gorgeous aromatic upper register to balance things out in a wine that captures all the sheer appeal of the 2016 vintage. $25.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2018)

Front-loaded with an abundance of spice and dark red fruit, the flavors are powerful and concentrated but the overall wine is smooth as can be.

Turley’s 2018 Zinfandel Old Vines is a gorgeous wine and a fabulous value. Sweet dark cherry, new leather, spice, menthol, licorice and red flower all open up effortlessly. Medium in body yet fleshy and wonderfully deep, the 2018 is absolutely delicious. $25.00 (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2019)
