2010 Turley "Ueberroth" Paso Robles Zinfandel
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Turley’s 2010 Zinfandel Ueberroth Vineyard, from one of the top sites in Paso Robles, strikes a gorgeous stylistic middle ground. Complex and beautiful, the 2010 possesses gorgeous mid-palate pliancy while remaining light on its feet. Blackberries, plums and exotic spices are all layered into the round, perfumed finish. I can’t wait to see how this ages. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
(15.8% alcohol): Dark red. Knockout aromas of dark fruit cocktail, crushed rock and licorice, along with a whiff of exotic fruits. Dense and saline on entry, then chewy and deep in the middle, with pungent minerality giving punch to the smooth blackberry flavor. Wonderfully expansive yet focused zinfandel, conveying a powerful impression of rocky minerality. The impressively long, palate-staining finish features great penetration and ripe, fine-grained tannins. Disturbingly good zinfandel.
