Turley Zinfandel Mead Ranch 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Turley's 2012 Zinfandel Mead Ranch is a bit delicate in this vintage. Soft, floral notes take shape in the glass in a lifted Zinfandel with clear mountain characteristics. The ethereal style is quite attractive. It will be interesting to see if the mid-palate fleshes out a bit more over the next year...90-92" Antonio Galloni 11/13 "Proprietor Larry Turley and his team have turned out a gorgeous set of wines with their 2011s and 2012s. Winemaker Tegan Passalacqua is one of the brightest young stars in California. Passalacqua has a deep passion for the state's heritage sites that comes through loud and clear in these expressive Zinfandels and Petite Sirahs. The team is rounded out by Christina Turley, who has recently joined her father at the winery, and is now much more actively involved in running the sales/marketing piece of the family business.
