Winemaker Notes

This wine is an homage to Joe Duarte, a prominent grape grower in Contra Costa who first introduced Turley to the incredible vineyards of the area. The wine is comprised of fruit from the Evanghelo, Mori, and Salvador vineyards, all in Contra Costa. The soil here is primarily sand, and as a result the wines have some of the softest, silkiest tannins Turley has ever seen in a Zinfandel.

RP 93
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
An attractive, fruit-forward wine, Turley’s 2011 Zinfandel Duarte is soft, caressing and very nicely balanced. This juicy, vibrant Zinfandel has more than enough depth to drink nicely for a number of years. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2018. Range: 91-93
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Ripe and briary, with raspberry and grilled herb aromas, delivering lively cherry, smoky sage and cracked pepper flavors. The tannins sneak in on the finish. Drink now through 2021.

Unapologetically bold, spice-driven and jammy, Zinfandel has secured it’s title as the darling of California vintners by adapting well to the states’ diverse microclimates and landscapes. Born in Croatia, it later made its way to southern Italy where it was named Primitivo. Fortunately, the imperial nursery of Vienna catalogued specimens of the vine, which sourced a journey to New England in 1829. Parading the true American spirit, Zinfandel found a new home in California during the Gold Rush of 1849. Somm Secret—California's ancient vines of Zinfandel are those that survived the neglect of Prohibition; today these vines produce the most concentrated, ethereal and complex examples.
