Turley Mead Ranch Zinfandel 2007
Freshness allied with serious power, concentration, and fruit is apparent in the deep ruby-colored 2007 Zinfandel Mead Ranch from the Atlas Peak sector of Napa. It exhibits outstanding fruit intensity (briery black currant and black cherry notes), a striking minerality, full-bodied power, and an enticing, zesty exuberance.
Good full ruby. Quite closed on the nose, hinting at bitter chocolate. Broad and plush but tightly wrapped, even clenched, today, with briary dark fruit flavors in the deep background. Best today on the long finish, which features very good peppery lift.
