Turley Wine Cellars Rattlesnake Ridge Zinfandel 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

the 2012 Zinfandel Rattlesnake Ridge (also from Howell Mountain) comes across a bit light in this vintage. Dark red cherries, plums, mint, licorice and anise all meld together in the glass. Floral and spice notes emerge over time, adding depth and complexity in this crystalline, nicely balanced Zinfandel...90-92" Antonio Galloni 11/13 "Proprietor Larry Turley and his team have turned out a gorgeous set of wines with their 2011s and 2012s. Winemaker Tegan Passalacqua is one of the brightest young stars in California. Passalacqua has a deep passion for the state's heritage sites that comes through loud and clear in these expressive Zinfandels and Petite Sirahs. The team is rounded out by Christina Turley, who has recently joined her father at the winery, and is now much more actively involved in running the sales/marketing piece of the family business.
