The 2018 Zinfandel Old Vines is a gorgeous wine and a fabulous value. Sweet dark cherry, new leather, spice, menthol, licorice and red flowers all open up effortlessly. Medium in body yet fleshy and wonderfully deep, the 2018 has a lot to offer. It can be enjoyed now, but also has the stuffing to develop nicely for years to come.
Score: 90 points -- Antonio Galloni, Vinous, 2020
For the past 20 years, the strongest hand at the Zinfandel wheel has been Larry Turley's. Turley Wine Cellars, which released its first wines with the 1993 vintage, pioneered a plush, richly fruity style of Zinfandel that helped establish the varietal as a world-class contender. Turley's Zins appear on America's best restaurant wine lists, and the waiting time for a spot on his direct mail list rivals that of many cult Cabernet Sauvignon producers.
