Are there better wines? Yes
Are there better wines with leftovers? No
From Turley: “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 41 to 129 years old, and a true representation of California old vine Zinfandel, hailing from vineyards in Napa, Sonoma, Mendocino, Lodi, Contra Costa, Amador and Paso Robles.”

The last of my stash of 2015 Old Vines was still drinking really well. Beautiful transparent garnet color. A deep, rich almost chewy nose. Dark fruits and hints of raspberry, maybe even a little red Lifesaver. Mild tannins. Thanks not-so-old friend.

This is a Barbaric wine. Brutal fruit nose and taste - vanilla, raspberry and blueberry. Low on tannins but it’s still there. A great wine!

2015 Turley Zinfandel Old Vine


When it comes to Zinfandel and Petite Syrah, I think about Turley, but this is my first Turley. A full bodied with black cherry, prune, raisin with a hint of cinnamon. The aroma is strong and floral. What a beauty!


ジンファンデル、ペティシラと言えば、ターリーを思い浮かべながらも、初ターリーです。フルボディのジンファンデルとはこういうワインなのか。ブラックチェリー、プルーン、レーズン、シナモンなど、香りはとても力強く華やか。素晴らしい。
