Turley Buck Cobb Vineyard Zinfandel 2018
|Region||California, Sierra Foothills, Amador County|
This most recent iteration of the ‘Buck’ Cobb vineyard is a beautiful example of how well an Amador vineyard can evolve with the right farming techniques, attention, and care. The nose is richly enticing, with notes of dark fruits, cola, and a soft, savory smokiness as well. The palate shows some extra oomph, thanks to the structured fine-grained granitic tannins and a pleasant weightiness. We recommend decanting.
The 2018 Zinfandel Buk Cobb Vineyard is bold and savory, with plenty of cedar, licorice, dried herbs, mint and pine character. Deceptive in its mid-weight feel, the 2018 pulses with real energy. Expressive, perfumed earthy notes add the closing shades of nuance.
