The 2010 Old Vines shows classic Zinfandel spice with dark fruit flavors. Every year we take old, dry farmed vineyards from across Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles, Amador County, Lodi, and Mendocino to make the Old Vines. This wine is the Juvenile's much older, wiser, slightly brooding brother. Darker, more dense, and a rich complexity that can only come from old vine Zinfandel that's been shown the signature Turley love.
"Another fabulous value, the 2010 Zinfandel Old Vines is endowed with serious richness and depth throughout. Blackberry jam, black cherries, menthol, cloves, tar and licorice all come to life in this distinctly dark, brooding wine. Constantly changing in the glass, the Old Vines has a certain elusive mysteriousness to it that is sure to delight. Once again, Turley has produced a wine that punches well above its weight big time.

"Bright, deep ruby. Classic zin aromas of blackberry, crushed black pepper and licorice. Creamy-sweet and fat, but with a sweet-tart character contributing to the wine's superb cut and purity of fruit. Complicated by an element of wild herbs. Finishes with suave tannins, solid structure and excellent length. A very successful fusion of zinfandel's many aspects, and a terrific value."
