Food Pairings for Turley Zinfandel Atlas Peak
The nose was intense yet elegant, showing blackberry and raspberry fruits, sweet spices, hints of charred wood and a whiff of vanilla. On the palate, I found intense, concentrated fruit kept in check by a core of streamlined acidity. Red and black fruits seemed to saturate the entire palate with hints of herbs, pepper and pure cocoa. On its own, the finish was slightly drying with palate-coating red fruits but it was perfect with a bite of beef brisket.

Finishes sweet and persistent, with firm but fine tannins. A very succ... Stephen Tanzer. A Zinfandel wine from California in USA. 2000 Turley Cellars Zinfandel Old Vines 750ml
