Turley Juvenile Zinfandel 2016
Hailing from 24 vineyards in 12 different counties across our beautiful Golden State, the Turley Juvenile sets the standard for classic California Zinfandel. In 2016, we see the first touch of relief from the drought, evident in the more delicate notes of white pepper, floral fruits, and nearly a Burgundy-esque lift on the nose. The palate is a great deal more powerful than the nose would have you believe; resplendent with dark fruits, black pepper and savory smoked spices, topped off by smooth, well-integrated tannins. Rip it & sip it, it’s ready to drink!
Wine SpectatorLoaded with pepper and smoky sweet anise flavors. The raspberry flavors take on tannins toward the finish. Best after 2019. 15,000 cases made.
