2006 Turley "Rattlesnake Ridge" Howell Mountain Zinfandel

SKU #1063229 89-91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark At 15.9% alcohol, one wouldn’t expect a Zinfandel with a Pinot Noir character to it, but the 2006 Zinfandel Rattlesnake Ridge from the cool upper elevations of Howell Mountain displays a lighter style, medium body, a fragrant, up-front, almost Pinot Noir-like delicacy, but some real strength in the background. This is not one of the bigger Zinfandels despite the high alcohol, and in fact it seems to be finesse-styled. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2007)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good saturated red-ruby. Reticent aromas of red berries and oak. Supple, creamy and sweet, but with a juicy quality and good lift to the raspberry and pepper flavors. Finishes with broad, dusty tannins. This could only be Zinfandel. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2008)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Densely structured, yet well-balanced, with smoky sage and wild blackberry aromas and tightly wound black cherry, black pepper and loam flavors that finish on a tannic note. (TF) Inner quote mark (7/2008)
