Bright ruby-red. Blackberry, cinnamon and spice aromas convey a powerful impression of vinosity. Then wonderfully bright and energetic in the mouth, with harmonious acidity giving shape and lift to the intense flavors of raspberry, exotic fruits and orange peel. Finishes with superb spicy persistence. Real time-capsule zinfandel.
One of the most famous Zinfandels made is Turley's 2006 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard. Always a big, backstrapping, super-concentrated Zinfandel, the 2006 is much more elegant than usual, without the blockbuster power. It is hardly a wimpish wine at 15.7% natural alcohol, but the overall impression is one of delicacy, finesse, and beautiful black cherry and currant notes intermixed with some lavender, spring flowers, and incense. A pretty wine, and another Zinfandel in this vintage that has a somewhat Pinot Noir sensibility to it.
