About Turley Wine Cellars
When it comes to California Zinfandels, Larry Turley is the master. His are huge, exotic reds that often have head-spinning alcohol and a bit of residual sugar, but at their core, are really showcases for the rich, ripe, old-vine fruit...

Jordan calls this one "the closer". Very dark ruby-red; slightly less vibrant color than the above. Knockout aromas of berries, vanilla, smoke, tobacco and gunflint; superripe but not raisiny. Velvety and tactile in the mouth; powerful but seamless. Very strong dark berry flavor.

Finishes with substantial but round tannins and a suggestion of earth. They don't make wine like this in France.
