Are there better wines? Yes
Are there better wines with leftovers? No
From Turley: “Old Vines is composed of a variety of old sites from California that are either too small to be made into a vineyard designate wine or are “new” to the Turley family (and way of farming). Vines are anywhere from 41 to 129 years old, and a true representation of California old vine Zinfandel, hailing from vineyards in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lodi, Contra Costa, Amador and Paso Robles.”

This is a Barbaric wine. Brutal fruit nose and taste - vanilla, raspberry and blueberry. Low on tannins but it’s still there. A great wine!

When it comes to Zinfandel and Petite Syrah, I think about Turkey, but this is my first Turley. A full bodied with black cherry, prune, raisin with a hint of cinnamon. The aroma is strong and floral. What a beauty!


ジンファンデル、ペティシラと言えば、ターリーを思い浮かべながらも、初ターリーです。フルボディのジンファンデルとはこういうワインなのか。ブラックチェリー、プルーン、レーズン、シナモンなど、香りはとても力強く華やか。素晴らしい。

Definitely a touch on the sweet side, but very nice on its own before dinner.

Sweet but restrained; interesting vegetal note. Improved greatly over time, but I thought alcohol level a bit high. Thanksgiving bottle #1.

Full mouth of jammy dark cherries, dark grapes and blackberries.

This is fantastic stuff. Surprisingly light on its feet with the acidity in the mid palate. Little alcoholic heat. Brambly nose with red fruit and cinnamon notes. Tremendous!
