97 points, Robert Parker, Wine Advocate August 1998
Representing the essence of Zinfandel, this wine boasts a dark saturated purple color, mind boggling fruit extract and concentration levels, compelling harmony and overall balance, particularly for a wine of such massive size, and a whoppingly long finish. The dominate characteristics are its blackberry/black raspberry/cherry liqueur-like flavors, voluptuous texture, and seamless integration of wood, alcohol, and acidity. I am not a great believer in the capability of Zinfandels to age, but this wine, although accessible now, should last well beyond a decade. Kudos to Turley!
95 points, Cellar Selection Designation, Wine Spectator July 1998
Here's a big, ripe mouthful of Zinfandel from a winery specializing in the variety. You can feel the energy in this seductive wine--dense, chewy and jam-packed with rich, concentrated plum, black cherry, blackberry and spice character. From a 90-year-old vineyard.
