    Well balanced with notes of black cherry and a bit of leather. Good mouth feel and a nice, but not lingering finish. A bit thin but well structured tannins made this a nice wine to go with a bit of good jazz.

    Received this Bottle of 2006 Turley Zinfandel as a gift today from a dear friend that has like taste as I do. He has yet to go wrong, excellent nose, beautiful legs and a finish that is fully fruit forward. I would highly recomment this wine to others that enjoy a wet fruit forward finish. A pleasure to drink with a nice meal as well as by itself or with dark chocolate. Enjoy this wine, exceptional

    Oh lagrave; lagrave;! Turley once again earns its reputation as one of the best California Zins. Simply irresistible! Not a glass of black goo like some port-like styles, this is fresh, vibrant and actually like some rich West Coast Pinot Noirs in color. At first, the nose is alive with crushed black cherries and a hint of black licorice, but with airing the aromas become complex with Asian spices, cantaloupe and strawberries. Fine, integrated tannins and lip-smacking acidity lift the velvety fruit and keep this 15.9% alcohol red seemingly fresh and pure. Turleyrsquo;s first level Zin, Juvenile is a steal!

    Good deep red. Black fruit and licorice aromas complemented by exotic chocolate and coffee nuances. Classic sweet zin flavors of dark berries, pepper and spices framed by ripe acidity. Finishes sweet, dense and persistent. A very good vintage for this blend, which is always an excellent value; includes juice from recently replanted vines from some of Turleyrsquo;s top sites.

    Fruit-driven aromas of raspberry, black cherry, chocolate and licorice. Sweet, supple and fruity, with exotic but fresh flavors. Finishes with sweet tannins and good length. Delicious zinfandel, and good value at the price.

    Gutsy and a little rustic, this is full of youthful verve. Aromas of wild berry, smoky pepper and licorice, and zesty raspberry, plum and rosemary flavors that build to lively tannins. Drink now through 2010.

    The Zinfandel lots from the youngest vines (around 25 years) are put into a general blend called Juvenile. This is always one of the least expensive and delicious offerings. The 2007 Zinfandel Juvenile offers good berry fruit, pepper, and spice as well as medium body, and no hard edges. This seductive Zin can be enjoyed over the next 2ndash;3 years.

    One of the great values from Turley, the 2003 Juvenile Zinfandel is an 800-case blend loaded with power (15.5% alcohol). A big, fruity, spicy, briery wine with low acidity, ripe fruit, and plenty of cherries and kirsch, this medium ruby-hued, sexy Zinfandel is ideal for drinking over the next 2ndash;3 years.

    One of the finest buys in this portfolio is the 2004 Zinfandel Juvenile, an 800- to 1,000-case blend made from younger vines. It offers plenty of jammy black cherry and briery fruit, low acidity, a plump, heady mouthfeel, good texture, and a seductive, lush finish with abundant alcohol as well as glycerin. Drink it over the next 3ndash;4 years.
