Wine Review: This dark ruby colored entry level Zinfandel from Turley opens with a blueberry bouquet with of black cherry. On the palate, this wine is medium bodied and slightly acidic. Its flavor profile is a mineral infused black currant with hints black licorice, black raspberry, and black olive. The finish is dry and its flavors linger and last for quite some time. This Zin would pair well with slowed cooked beef brisket. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: Though the vast majority of our wines are single vineyard designates, Juvenile is actually composed of a variety of young vines that have been replanted in several of our old vine sites. We tag the vine when we replant it so as not to mix the brand new vine with its much older neighbors, then pick these young vines separately and make a distinct wine. The vines that make up Juvenile range in age from about 6-25 years, and we pull from 15 of our vineyards across California, including Hayne, Ueberroth, Pesenti, Salvador, and Vineyard 101.
