2006 Turley "Juvenile" California Zinfandel

SKU #1045503 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 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)  (12/2007)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 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)  (5/2008)

Wine Spectator

 Rustic around the edges, this is lively and zesty, with appealingly briary plum, licorice and spicy underbrush notes. (TF)  (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."
