Turley Zinfandel Howell Mountain Pringle Family 2005

Member Review by Terence Pang:

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.

Turley is a winery that focuses on small production “Big Red” wines from old vine Zinfandel and Petite Syrah, based in St. Helena in the Napa Valley, California. The winery is a family operation helmed brother and sister duo Larry and Helen Turley, founded in 1993. Their prestigious wines are in constantly high demand, and their private wine club has a two-year waiting list. The wines are produced from several vineyards, with vines dating back to the 1800s. Each terroir lends its own character to the wines, and they are given separate labels according to location each vintage. The vineyards are located in Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles, Lodi, Howell Mountain and Contra Costa.  Read less
Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Coconut Rice Sweet Potato Cheesecake

RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
