Turley Zinfandel Alexander Valley Vineyard 101 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

Zinfandel: "There are only 175 cases of the 2002 Zinfandel Vineyard 101 (15.4% alcohol). Sweet kirsch liqueur notes intertwined with licorice, sandstone, balsam wood, and spice emerge from this surprisingly elegant, medium to full-bodied 2002. Once again, amazing purity of fruit, a hallmark of this producer, is present." RP

[Metro C&WB] serious black fruit, licorice, slight methonal; based on this tasting would not seek out more, but this was probably a little to oxidized to fairly judge.

Turley 02 Pesenti Zinfandel92-94 Points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate: The 2002 Zinfandel Pesenti Estate, from a 50-year old site planted on pure limestone, tastes like a classic Chateauneuf du Pape made from Grenache. The 16% alcohol is well-concealed in this 700-case cuvee. A deep ruby color is accompanied by sumptuous aromatics of kirsch liqueur kissed with melted licorice, pepper, and spice. There is tremendous precision, surprisingly good acidity (thanks to the limestone soils), and a heady, rich, full-bodied, impressive finish. This is the finest example yet fashioned from the Pesenti Estate.

Wine Advocate ReviewA debut effort is the 500-case 2002 Zinfandel Ueberroth Vineyard, a limestone vineyard on the west side of Paso Robles planted in 1885. Yes, for those who are wondering, this is the former commissioner of major league baseball. This stunning Zinfandel comes across like a full-throttle Chateauneuf du Pape. Kirsch liqueur, pepper, and garrigue/Provencal herb-like notes cascade from the glass of this full-bodied, heady red (500 cases; 16.4% alcohol). Amazingly rich, with a velvety, unctuous texture, enormous thickness yet surprising elegance as well as delineation, it is the result of exceptional winemaking and old vines ... a marvelous combination. Enjoy it over the next 5-7 years.
