Critical Acclaim

"More structured with more obvious tannin, minerality, and graphite notes is the blue and black fruit-filled, dark purple-hued 2008 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard. From Howell Mountain, it is one of the strongest Zinfandels produced by Turley. The wine exhibits lots of structure as well as considerable aging potential for a Zinfandel (10+ years). It offers loads of mineral-laced blue and black fruits combined with notions of new saddle leather, crushed rocks, flowers, and berries. Rating 93-95."
95 Points

"Dark red. Dark berries, licorice, violet and incense on the nose and palate, lifted by a peppery nuance. Rich, peppery and deep, with lovely intensity of flavor and a distinctly layered quality to its sweet, powerful fruit. At once chewy and focused, this heady zinfandel fans out impressively on the back end, finishing with big, ripe, chewy tannins and impressive energy."
93 Points
