Turley Zinfandel Howell Mountain Cedarman Vineyard 2015

External Review:

A wine of contrasts, the 2011 Zinfandel Cedarman holds plenty of intrigue. At once dense and rich, the 2011 nevertheless remains essentially a mid-weight yet powerful wine endowed with lovely definition. Blueberries, blackberries, licorice, smoke and tar all jump from the glass. Overall, this is a relatively soft style for Howell Mountain in this vintage. Anticipated maturity: 2013–2018.

Bright ruby-red. Highly distinctive nose combines blueberry, blackberry, strawberry, graphite, spices and flowers; almost Rhone-like. Then silky, dry and powerful on the palate, with intense black fruit flavors accented by wild spices. Finishes with serious Howell Mountain tannins and excellent length. This very spicy wine begs for meat cooked on the grill.

In the 2010 Cedarman, Howell Mountain makes its presence well known. Darker than its counterparts Rattlesnake and Dragon, the wine almost resembles a Napa Cabernet. ALMOST. We said almost. No need to freak out. Fruit takes a back seat to lead and pepper.

Good deep ruby. High-toned, porty aromas of black cherry and Valrhona chocolate. Dense and thick, with lush, sweet flavors of black cherry and violet. The porty quality carries through onto the palate. Not complex but boasts a rather suave texture. Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Zinfandel wine from California in USA. 2007 Turley Cellars Zinfandel Cedarman Howell Mountain 750ml
