    Winemaker's Notes:

    Mead Ranch seems to miraculously improve year after year, proving you should never settle even when you think you've attained excellence. Located on a plateau atop Atlas Peak in Napa, the Bay's cooling influence is easily felt—you can even see San Francisco on a clear day. Because of the general freshness of this microclimate, the vines have longer hang times, which lend the wine structure & balance. Graphite, minerals, and distinct mountain spice dominate the nose, while the palate reflects its terroir with a savory/smoked meat element.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Good medium ruby. Pungent, steely aromas and flavors of blackberry, spicecake, chocolate, orange peel and white pepper; almost syrah-like. Dense and sweet in the mouth but with terrific aromatic lift thanks to firm acidity and a strong white pepper quality. Really lovely definition and perfume here. Exhilaratingly long, palate-cleansing finish. I never would have guessed this wine had a pH of 3.9. Superb zinfandel.

    International Wine Cellar

    The 2010 Zinfandel Mead Ranch opens with a precise, beautifully delineated bouquet laced with sweet red berries, mint, tobacco and incense. Delineation, purity and precision are some of the qualities that distinguish the Mead Ranch. An expressive, creamy finish rounds things out in style. The Mead Ranch is one of many standouts in this lineup of 2010s from Turley.
