Food Pairings for Turley Zinfandel Paso Robles Pesenti Vineyard
92 points. Deep woody tones make up the majority of the aroma. Blackberry, black tea, and a touch of pepper also seem to show through pretty strongly, with blueberry and plum jam, rose bush, and caraway emerging with a spin in the glass. Nicely rich and full bodied, this wine is instantly shows fresh blackberry and spiced, raspberry sauce flavors. There is a toast and tar component combined with a hint of leather moving into the mid palate. The tannins are firm and gripping, but have a certain waxy quality about them that is reminiscent of eating a dark chocolate bar. Rose wood and sap appear on the finish and seem to never cease. This wine is beautifully bright, while still maintaining a substantial amount of depth. I could see it evolving significantly over the next three to five years.
