Winemaker's Notes

The 2001 Zinfandel Dogtown is from a 65-year-old vineyard situated on the border of Amador. It is yet another in a string of superbly crafted California Zins and may be the best wine period from the Lodi appellation.

Critical Acclaim

"As for the 2001 Zinfandel Dogtown Vineyard, no one seems to "let the dogs out" better than Turley. This dense plum/ruby-colored Zinfandel possesses jammy aromas of black cherries and plums, followed by full-bodied, fleshy flavors with loads of fruit, glycerin, and pleasing tactile sensations."
91 Points

"Good bright ruby. Nose currently dominated by exotic notes of grapefruit and orange peel. Sweet, dense and highly concentrated, with spicy, peppery fruit flavors lifted by rather citrusy acids. A powerful, tannic, very long wine with excellent grip. Clearly from low yields and features a high ratio of skins to juice. This would be perfect with a garlicky slab of steak."
