Turley Zinfandel Contra Costa County Duarte Vineyard 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Turley 03 Duarte Zinfandel<br/><br/>The spicy, earthy, berry-scented 2003 Zinfandel Duarte (450 cases; 16.7% alcohol) exhibits aromas of seaweed, particularly the wrap-around sushi called nori. The distinctive bouquet leads to a garrigue, southern Rhone sort of personality, with kirsch and cherry fruit, firm earthiness, and a certain austerity.<br/><br/>

...Exotic, candied aromas of strawberry and pepper. Sweet, dense and peppery, with red berry and spice cake flavors. Very expressive and varietally accurate zinfandel, finishing with sweet tannins and very good length... Stephen Tanzer. A Zinfandel wine from California in USA. 2003 Turley Cellars Zinfandel Duarte Vineyard 750ml
