2006 Turley "Juvenile" California Zinfandel

SKU #1045503 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The easiest drinking Zinfandel, at least one meant for immediate consumption (although one could argue that all Zinfandels should be consumed in the near-term) is the 2006 Juvenile. Made from the young-vine cuvees at Turley, the wine is a sensual, up-front, medium-bodied Zinfandel with dark ruby color, plenty of berry fruit, but some underbrush, pepper, and spice. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2007)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good full ruby-red. Briary dark berries and licorice on the slightly liqueur-like nose. Spicy red fruit and pepper flavors are nicely framed by fresh acidity. Offers good texture and finishes with substantial tannins. This is always good value. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2008)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Rustic around the edges, this is lively and zesty, with appealingly briary plum, licorice and spicy underbrush notes. (TF) Inner quote mark (7/2008)

K&L Notes

Producer Note:"Though the vast majority of our wines are single vineyard designates, Juvenile is actually composed of a variety of young vines that have been replanted in several of our old vine sites. We tag the vine when we replant it so as not to mix the brand new vine with its much older neighbors, then pick these young vines separately and make a distinct wine. The vines that make up Juvenile range in age from about 6-25 years, and we pull from 18 of our best vineyards across California, including Hayne, Ueberroth, Pesenti, Salvador, Vineyard 101, Fredericks and Kirschenmann."
