Winemaker's Notes:

One of the old classics, Turley's 2008 Zinfandel Moore Earthquake Vineyard (made from extremely old vines) it exhibits southern Rhone-like characteristics of roasted peppers, licorice, lavender, crushed rocks, kirsch, and other black fruits. With excellent intensity, richness, and full body, it is another example of this sensationally strong, impressive vintage for Turley Wine Cellars.
