2013 Turley "Duarte" Contra Costa County Zinfandel
The 2013 Zinfandel Duarte Vineyard is dark, fleshy and seductive, with a good dose of aromatic lift from the sandy soils. Sweet red cherry, plum, spice and mint are laced together. Effortless and gracious, the 2013 hits all the right notes. The flavors are intense and aromatic, with plenty of rose petal and sweet red berry fruit notes. (AG)
Dusty rose petal and raspberry aromas lead to fresh and supple flavors of cherry pie, toasted sage and fresh pepper. A pleasure to drink. Drink now through 2020. (TF)
