Turley 2016 Zinfandel Old Vines

Description

"Another relatively big cuvée for Turley is their 2015 Zinfandel Old Vines (15.5% alcohol) that comes from bits and pieces of parcels that are impressive terroirs, but individually too small to bottle separately. Hence, they are blended together, yet represent vineyards between 41 and 130 years old! This juicy wine offers loads of raspberry and briary fruit, a full-bodied mouthfeel, good purity, zesty acidity and ripe tannin. Layered and rich, it is a satisfying, lusty Zinfandel to drink over the next 4-5 years."

"One of Turley's emblematic bottlings, the 2016 Zinfandel Old Vines exhibits a lovely bouquet of raspberries, plums, cherries and licorice. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with rich structuring tannins, a generous core of fleshy fruit and a long, flavorful finish. Passalacqua notes that a lot of the single vineyards that Turley works with today began life as part of the Old Vines blend while the sources and farming improvements were made and that a few barrels of many of the top single vineyards usually find their way into the blend."
