Turley 2009 Howell Mountain Zinfandel
Been waiting to pop this rascal. I heard it is a bold Zin that will hold well so I decided to let it lay down for a while. To be honest, it could have gone a few more years. Bold, wet raspberries ripe with oak notes and hints of cocoa. At over 16%, the structure is wild but not reckless. Once on the palate, you are treated to plenty of pepper flavors on the rear palate and a long finish. She’s a doozy!
