2012 Turley "Old Vines" California Zinfandel

SKU #1175597 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Other bits and pieces from old vine parcels are co-mingled in the 2012 Zinfandel Old Vines, a delicious, up-front, medium ruby-colored Zin made with a Pinot Noir-like sensitivity. Both of these cuvees are best drunk in their first 3-4 years of life. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2012 Zinfandel Old Vines is bright, saline and beautifully focused throughout. Floral notes meld into cranberries, sweet red cherries, mint and tobacco. All the elements come together effortlessly in the glass. This is another 2012 endowed with precision and energy. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2014)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Balances bold black cherry fruit with a sleek, focused structure, offering notes of briary wild berry, smoky cracked pepper and anise. Drink now through 2021. *Smart Buy* (TF) Inner quote mark (4/2015)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark (a blend of vines between 18 and 80 years of age, from vineyards all over the state): Bright, dark red-ruby. Lovely floral perfume and a whiff of orange zest lift the blackberry aroma. A step up in inner-mouth energy from the Juvenile, with its creamy middle retaining an attractive high pitch. Firmly built, serious blend--and good value. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)
