Turley Old Vines Zinfandel 2021
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). While we bring them up to speed as far as our rigorous farming practices go, in the mean time they make up the Old Vines blend. The average age of the vines in these 18 vineyards is about 80 years old, and they hail from Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lodi, Contra Costa, Amador, and Paso Robles.
The 2021 Zinfandel Old Vines offers terrific brightness and energy. Crushed red/purplish berry fruit, mint and white pepper lend notable energy and freshness throughout. This is a fabulous introduction to the vintage at Turley.
