2013 Turley "Juvenile" California Zinfandel
Racy and fairly ripe, with jammy raspberry and spiced cinnamon aromas leading to vivid flavors of dried cherry, licorice and rosemary. Drink now through 2020. (TF)
Turley's 2013 Zinfandel Juvenile is laced with dark red cherry, plum, mint and sweet, exotic spices. Lifted aromatics and veins of supporting salinity give the wine its shape and sense of proportion. Drink this supple, highly expressive Zinfandel over the next few years. Although delicious on its own merits, the Juvenile also happens to be a superb value. (AG)
