Turley Juvenile Zinfandel 2001

SKU C0352


Though the vast majority of our wines are single vineyard designates, Juvenile is actually composed of a variety of young vines that have been replanted in several of our old vine sites. We tag the vine when we replant it so as not to mix the brand new vine with its much older neighbors, then pick these young vines separately and make a distinct wine. The vines that make up Juvenile range in age from about 6-25 years, and we pull from 15 of our vineyards across California, including Hayne, Ueberroth, Pesenti, Salvador, and Vineyard 101.

Wine AdvocateThe dark plum/ruby-colored 2001 Zinfandel Juvenile (15.3% alcohol) offers pure briery raspberry and cherry fruit, medium body, surprising elegance and restraint, and a stylish, graceful finish. While not a big wine by Turley's standards, it is impeccably well made. Drink it over the next 2-3 years.
