Turley Estate Zinfandel 2018
Winemaker Notes :
2018 is the 20th vintage of Turley’s Estate Zinfandel. Vibrantly colored and deeply aromatic, the ’18 Estate Zin is true Napa Valley elegant opulence. Loads of fruit and earth on the nose, along with dried flowers, cedar and tobacco, reminiscent of Chateauneuf du Pape and other wines of the southern Rhone. The multi-dimensional palate has more structure and grip than years past, as well as a bit of gravel dust on the finish. Fans of their Aida wines of yore will find them resurrected here.
The 2018 Zinfandel Turley Estate is dense, powerful and savory. Cedar, tobacco, menthol, licorice and dried flowers give the 2018 striking aromatic intensity to play off of a core of dense, resonant fruit that is imbued with serious tannic heft and tons of character. This is an especially virile, opulent style.
