Turley Zinfandel Howell Mountain Pringle Family 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Notes on the Turley Pringle Vineyard Napa Valley Zinfandel 2001 96 Pts Parker : WINE ADVOCATE REVIEW: 96 POINTS From the cooler climate, upper reaches of Howell Mountain, the 2001 Zinfandel Pringle Family Vineyard (16.2% alcohol) boasts a saturated purple color as well as a terrific perfume of minerals, creme de cassis, and blackberry liqueur. Revealing great intensity, surprising structure, tremendous purity, and good underlying acidity buttressing the enormous wealth of fruit and glycerin, this is a tour de force in Zinfandel. This brilliant effort will probably evolve for a decade.TURLEY PRINGLE VINEYARD NAPA VALLEY ZINFANDEL 2001 96 PTS PARKER

Purchased from Winebid.com. Intense dark ruby colour. Clean, layered aromas of blackberries, blackcurrants, fresh violet florals, hints of baked cloves and pepper. Dry, full-bodied wine with racy acidity and an even slath of tannins. 16.2% alc but you hardly feel it. Silky textured, it is more straight-forward on the palate without compromising its expressiveness. Vibrant dark berry fruit flavours, plenty of spice and black pepper on the finish. Long supple finish, this has aged very well and probably has a few years left in the tank. Drink now – 2018. 94/100.
