2002 Turley "Old Vines" California Zinfandel

SKU #1010019 91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full ruby-red. Superripe aromas of raspberry syrup and flowers, with hints of exotic fruits. Sweet, lush and sappy; big and rich. Very ripe fruit syrup flavors lifted by spice and minerals. Velvety, fat, superripe Zinfandel with a long, spicy finish. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2004)

89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2002 Zinfandel Old Vines is a blend of lots that did not make the grade for the single vineyard offerings. No wimpy wine at 16.4% alcohol, it exhibits deep, jammy black fruits intermixed with saddle leather, pepper, and earth. With an unctuous texture as well as a big, chewy finish, it is a robust, mouthfilling, value-priced Zinfandel... (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2003)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Ripe, intense and concentrated, with deftly balanced fruit and light cedary oak. The zesty cranberry and wild berry flavors are restrained and harmonious, giving you more flavor and depth than you might expect from a California appellation Zin. Inner quote mark (11/2004)

K&L Notes

By focusing on old-vine vineyards in particular, Turley aims to both create and preserve California’s unique winemaking culture. All of the vineyards are either certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers or somewhere in the process, and they use all natural yeasts in the fermentations.
