2006 Turley "Dragon" Howell Mountain Zinfandel

SKU #1063230 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark One of my favorites is the 2006 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard, which is actually from some of the younger vines that Turley bottles separately. This Howell Mountain offering tips the scales at nearly 16% alcohol and offers a southern Rhone Valley-like notes of lavender, kirsch liqueur, pepper, spice, and loads of blackberry and sweet cherry fruit. The wine has decent acidity, ripe tannin, and a long, heady finish. This is a seductive, complex, and beautiful Zinfandel. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2007)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Good medium ruby. Black raspberry, spices and fruity pepper on the slightly medicinal nose. Ripe, lush and mouthfilling but quite dry; a big, chewy wine with a deep pepper-and-spice character. Finishes with very suave, pliant tannins. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2008)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Exotic aromas of huckleberry and loamy white pepper, accented by sage and underbrush, lead to layered and densely focused wild berry, licorice and bay leaf flavors that finish with rustic tannins. (TF) Inner quote mark (7/2008)
