Turley Old Vines Zinfandel 2019
Old Vines is composed of a variety of old sites from California that are either too small to be made into a vineyard designate wine or are “new” to the Turley family (and way of farming). Vines are anywhere from 50 to 130 years old, and are a true representation of California old vine Zinfandel, hailing from vineyards in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lodi, Contra Costa, Amador and Paso Robles. There is no better way to gauge the classic character of old vine Zinfandel in California than through this wine.
From over 20 historic vineyards across California and aged in only 10% new oak. Perfectly ripe blackberries, ripe raspberries, plum, orange zest, and spiced tea. Supple yet nimble on the palate with medium body and very well-integrated tannins. The kind of natural depth, complexity, and grace that can only come from truly old vines. Ready to drink now at 55°-60°F.
