(2001 Vintage) Turley 01 Moore Earthquake Zin
95 Points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate: A saturated ruby/purple color along with notes of blueberries, blackberries, minerals, and white flowers are found in the spectacular 2001 Zinfandel Moore (Earthquake) Vineyard (15.4% alcohol). Full-bodied, opulent, and voluptuous, with admirable purity, palate presence, and density, this is the type of All-American Zinfandel that Turley routinely achieves. With good underlying acidity supporting the enormous concentration and richness.
International Wine CellarDeep ruby-red. Spicy black cherry lifted by minerals and pepper. Sweet, spicy and impressively concentrated, with firm minerality contributing to the impression of structure. Youthfully tight, tannic and backward, but this possesses a superb core of fruit and a sappy, peppery freshness that suggests it will develop well in bottle.
