Turley Zinfandel Napa Valley Keig Vineyard 2003

Winemaker's Notes:

Turley 03 Keig Zinfandel<br/><br/>"Deep red-ruby. Superripe, somewhat porty nose shows a strong lead pencil component. Then fat, sweet, creamy and rich; an expansive if not especially fruity zinfandel with excellent ripeness nicely buffered by lively acidity. A bit youthfully aggressive, but the tannins are thoroughly ripe. 89 points" Stephen Tanzers International Wine Cellar (Steven Tanzer, 05/01/2005) <br/><br/>Rating: 89 <br/><br/>

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
