2006 Turley "Moore-Earthquake Vineyard" Napa Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1044081 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Bright medium red. Cherry, pepper and smoke, along with an intriguing flinty quality, on the slightly reduced nose. Moderately sweet and fat, with the smoke and flint nuances carrying through on the palate. Currently a rather atypical Moore, as it doesn't yet show the explosive fruit this bottling often displays. This is 15% alcohol "at the most," notes winemaker Jordan, adding that the fruit was harvested very late. (ST)  (6/2008)

91 points Wine Spectator

 Young and untamed, but that's the appeal. Offers lively aromas of wild berry, smoky oak and spice aromas that open to layered, zesty plum, pomegranate and licorice notes. The tannins are ripe but rustic. (TF, Web-2009)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 One of my favorite Zinfandels is the Zinfandel Moore Earthquake Vineyard, but the 2006 was just not singing. It is an elegant style, with high acidity, and restrained and somewhat understated when comparing it with previous examples from this vineyard. We’ll see how it behaves. (RP)  (12/2007)
