Food Pairings for Turley Zinfandel California Old Vines
I enjoyed the Turley 2007 Old Vine Zinfandel last night with dinner (April 10, 2010). It paired nicely with some highly flavorful and robustly seasoned salmon, couscous and asparagus. This Zin is beautiful - not too jammy like many zins are these days. It's appropriately spicy and peppery, with plum and berry notes interwoven giving it a lovely balance of flavors. It's great on the nose and finishes nicely, too. I would definitely want to purchase this wine again, but I'm not sure it's quite worth the money. I also hear the folks at the winery can be snobby, which is a huge turn-off to me. I mean, really...do we need to be full of ourselves?? These reasons knock this from a "5" to a "4" rating for me. But if you've had a different experience at the winery and/or if you don't mind snooty folks when you go tasting, then the wine, in and of itself, is lovely.
