Celebrating the 4th of July with some delicious bottles, with this one getting a nod toward the American theme.

This may be the best young Turley Zinfandel I’ve had to date. I needed something to stand up to a grilled skirt steak with chimichurri sauce, and this was a match made in heaven. Freshly grilled plums, squeezed blueberries, black currant jelly, sandalwood, and baking spices on the nose. Ripe on the palate but certainly not overly rich or flabby. Solid acidity and structure. Juicy, yet tannic. Dark fruit preserves, mixed berry pie, hint of fig and cherry infused dark chocolate. Hedonistic now, and will continue to improve for years. Delicious! My thanks to
@Dan Fitzgerald for helping me source a bottle.
