Turley Zinfandel Atlas Peak 2002
Notes on the Turley Duarte Contra Costa Zinfandel 2002 91-93 Pts Parker : WINE ADVOCATE REVIEW: 91-93 POINTS Few other producers can equal what Larry Turley accomplishes with Contra Costa Zinfandel from the Duarte Vineyard. From ungrafted, ancient vines planted in pure sand (Turley says it looks like a beach), there are 400 cases of the powerhouse 2002 Zinfandel Duarte Vineyard (400 cases; 16.7% alcohol). Full-bodied and dense, with no hotness, but copious quantities of raspberries, blackberries, balsam wood, pepper, and Provencal herbs, this is a rich, layered, hedonistic turn-on. It can be enjoyed over the next 5-6 yearsTURLEY DUARTE CONTRA COSTA ZINFANDEL 2002 91-93 PTS PARKER

Turley 02 Old Vines Zinfandel 89-91 Points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate: The 2002 Zinfandel Old Vines is a blend of lots that did not make the grade for the single vineyard offerings. No wimpy wine at 16.4% alcohol, it exhibits deep, jammy black fruits intermixed with saddle leather, pepper, and earth. With an unctuous texture as well as a big, chewy finish, it is a robust, mouthfilling, value-priced Zinfandel.
