2016 Turley "Judge Bell Vineyard" Amador County Zinfandel

SKU #1496344 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Winemaker Tegan Passalacqua suggests the 2016 Zinfandel Judge Bell Vineyard is strangely reminiscent of Nebbiolo, and it's difficult to disagree. The wine displays a complex bouquet of dried herbs, sage and juicy red-black fruit, followed by a full-bodied, ample and fleshy palate with chewy, stony tannins and an enticingly bittersweet 'amaro' finish that's a world away from how Zinfandel is commonly rendered. This is one of the most singular wines in the Turley lineup. (WK) Inner quote mark (9/2018)

90-93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark A powerful wine, the 2016 Zinfandel Judge Bell Vineyard is built on a core of serious fruit intensity and tannin. I imagine the 2016 will need quite a few years to be at its best, as it is very much tightly wound at this stage. This is one of the more burly wines in this range, at least today. The Judge Bell emerges from a site planted at 1,500 feet above sea level in 1907. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2018)
