Mature blackberry, dark cherry, and black raspberry flavors, complemented by traditional spices, are harmoniously balanced with lively acidity and gentle tannins. This wine offers a truly gratifying experience, showcasing its intrinsic depth, intricate layers, and elegant charm.
The "Old Vines" wine is crafted from a diverse selection of aged vineyard sites in California. These sites may be too small to warrant a single-vineyard bottling or are recent additions to the Turley's Organic farming approach. The vines range from 41 to 129 years in age and serve as a genuine embodiment of classic California old vine Zinfandel. These vineyards span across Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lodi, Contra Costa, Amador, and Paso Robles, showcasing the rich tapestry of California's Zinfandel heritage.
The 2021 Zinfandel Old Vines has a medium ruby color and plush red and black cherries on the nose with accents of mushrooms, forest floor, savory spices and mint. The full-bodied palate is grainy and refreshing with generous berry fruit and a long, spicy finish. It's similar to the Juvenile with a bit more oomph, and it's just as easy to drink.
