Winemaker's Notes

(From 2003 Vintage) Turley 03 Dragon Zinfandel

92-95 Points - Robert Parker, Wine Advocate: One of the finest wines of the vintage in the Turley portfolio is the 2003 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard. This is another Howell Mountain Vineyard that has produced 350 cases of wine (16.2% alcohol) that, aromatically, reminded me a of a superb Pomerol. Black raspberry, plum, and floral scents are accompanied by a deep ruby/purple color as well as exceptional black fruit characteristics intermixed with floral notes and a hint of minerals. This is a complex, full-bodied, opulently textured Zinfandel read more...with purity and stature.
