2010 Turley "Dogtown" Lodi Zinfandel

SKU #1194087 94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Turley’s 2010 Zinfandel Dogtown Vineyard is a wine that will challenge readers’ perceptions of what Zinfandel can be. Intensely perfumed and gracious, the 2010 flows across the palate with raspberry jam, crushed flowers and licorice. The aromas and flavors are very much high-toned in this utterly distinctive Zinfandel. There is no shortage of personality here. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2012)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Bright deep ruby. High-pitched aromas of blackberry, licorice pastille, mint, wild herbs and black tea. Thick, powerful and creamy, with a very strong spice character to the black fruit and licorice flavors. Rather musclebound and extremely backward today--even a bit unrefined--finishing with a serious spine of tannins. Very impressive but not yet ready for prime time. Jordan noted that Lodi was much less affected by heat spikes in 2010 than was the North Coast. (ST) 92+ Inner quote mark (5/2012)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A big boy, both ripe and muscular, offering a style typical of the region. Meaty plum aromas mix with dense boysenberry, white pepper and fresh sage flavors. Herb-tinged tannins grab the finish. (TF) Inner quote mark (12/2012)
