2013 Turley "Salvador" Contra Costa County Zinfandel

SKU #1229406 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2013 Zinfandel Salvador Vineyard comes from another ancient, organically farmed vineyard, this one in Contra Costa. Its vines were planted in 1896, and the soils are pure sand. An absolutely amazing Zinfandel, this gorgeously proportioned, super-rich wine crosses the palate with a surprisingly unnoticeable 16.1% alcohol. Good acidity, a corpulent, full-bodied, multi-dimensional mouthfeel with blueberry and blackberry jam, some cassis, earth and forest floor notes are all present in this spectacular wine that again will transport a blind taster to the South of France rather than the backwaters of California. I suppose if the FX series “Sons of Anarchy” had a house wine after a long ride on their choppers, this would be it. This is pedal-to-the-metal, full-throttle Zinfandel at its greatest, what California does so well and what no other region in the world can produce. This is killer stuff and a tribute to our early immigrants, who had the foresight to plant these vines at this remarkable site. Drink it over the next decade. Inner quote mark (4/2015)

Outer quote mark The 2013 Zinfandel Salvador Vineyard is one of the juicier wines in the range. A host of dark red cherry, plum, spice, mint and lavender meld together in a succulent, forward Zinfandel built on racy, exuberant fruit. The 2013 will drink well with minimal cellaring.-Antonio Galloni writing for Vinous.com Inner quote mark (10/2015)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Sleek and jammy, but with a nicely structured core, this red combines bright cherry and toasty sage aromas with supple, ripe flavors of wild berry, anise and licorice. Drink now through 2024. (TF) Inner quote mark (3/2016)
