Turley Zinfandel

2018 Turley Zinfandel Juvenile...$22.99
Though the vast majority of our wines are single vineyard designates, Juvenile is actually composed of a variety of young vines that have been replanted in several of our old vine sites. We tag the younger vines then pick them separately and make a distinct wine. The vines that make up Juvenile range in age from about 6- 25 years, and we pull from a selection of our best vineyards across California, including Hayne, Pesenti, Salvador, Vineyard 101, Fredericks and the Estate. Hailing from 29 vineyards in 11 different counties across our beautiful Golden State, the Turley Juvenile sets the standard for classic California Zinfandel. Bright, vibrant pepper and spice with lovely lifted red fruits, satiating acidity and a hint of blue fruits as well. Lithely textured with pure precision and tons of energy on the palate.

2017 Turley Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard...$45.99
The Pesenti vineyard was planted in the 1920s on limestone soils. Deep ruby in color, the 2017 Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard gives savory notes of charcuterie over dried brambly fruits and crushed black cherries with hints of dried soil. Medium to full-bodied, it offers savory-laced fruits in the mouth with soft, grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long with pretty dried flowers notes. 2,400 cases produced.
Rated 93/100 The Wine Advocate

2018 Turley Pesenti Paso Robles...$45.99
The 2018 Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard is one of the most distinctive wines in this range. Intense, deep aromatics give the 2018 so much of its personality. Inky dark fruit, wild flowers and exotic spice all abound in a perfumed, expressive Zinfandel endowed with tons of power and depth.

2018 Turley Turley Estate Zinfandel...$41.99
The 2018 Zinfandel Turley Estate is dense, powerful and savory. Cedar, tobacco, menthol, licorice and dried flowers give the 2018 striking aromatic intensity to play off of a core of dense, resonant fruit that is imbued with serious tannic heft and tons of character. This is an especially virile, opulent style.

2018 Turley Dusi Vineyard Paso Robles...$49.99
The 2018 Zinfandel Dusi Vineyard is laced with tons of rich, exuberant fruit, but is also impeccably balanced. Lavender, spice, plum and sweet purple fruit all infuse this mid-weight, super-expressive Zinfandel. I very much like the energy here.
