2008 Turley "Dragon Vineyard" Howell Mountain Zinfandel

SKU #1130048 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark More structured with more obvious tannin, minerality, and graphite notes is the blue and black fruit-filled, dark purple-hued 2008 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard. From Howell Mountain, it is one of the strongest Zinfandels produced by Turley. The wine exhibits lots of structure as well as considerable aging potential for a Zinfandel (10+ years). It offers loads of mineral-laced blue and black fruits combined with notions of new saddle leather, crushed rocks, flowers, and berries. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2009)

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Dark red. Dark berries, licorice, violet and incense on the nose and palate, lifted by a peppery nuance. Rich, peppery and deep, with lovely intensity of flavor and a distinctly layered quality to its sweet, powerful fruit. At once chewy and focused, this heady zinfandel fans out impressively on the back end, finishing with big, ripe, chewy tannins and impressive energy. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2010)
