Turley 2015 Hayne Vineyard Zinfandel
Turley is one of the best-known names in Zinfandel. Originally starting with Napa Valley vineyards, Larry Turley’s winery produces an exciting and comprehensive variety of single vineyard Zins from regions that range from Napa’s Howell Mountain and Sonoma’s Dry Creek to Amador County and Paso Robles Westside soils.
The key to Turley’s success is the old vines he discovered in his pursuit of resurrecting the pre-prohibition Zinfandel vineyards. These grapes make the type of wines that Turley loves: bold flavors and no-holds-barred intensity. They also have a distinctive mineral character and lively acidity, which keeps the flavors focused even at the maximum ripeness that Turley prefers.
We couldn’t agree more with this style preference and one of our Zin favorites is the 2015 Hayne Vineyard in Napa Valley. This has intoxicating aromas of raspberry, black cherry and cracked pepper with full-bodied cherry, anise and sage flavors carrying to a long finish. This one is big enough for your next grilled steak or roasted lamb. Try it now- your senses will thank you!
