Wine AdvocateThe first Zinfandel from the Pesenti Vineyard vinified by Larry Turley and Ehren Jordan is the 2000. This old, 50-acre Paso Robles vineyard is planted on pure limestone (one of the few limestone vineyards in California). It carries 15.3% alcohol. The wine is structured, with surprisingly high acidity (the limestone effect), a deep ruby/purple color, graceful black currant and raspberry flavors, and hints of pepper, minerals, and spice. This elegant, European-styled Zinfandel is atypical compared to the other Turley offerings. It should drink well for a decade.

Wine SpectatorRacy notes of wild berry are tangy and unusual against spicy, smoky notes. There are distinctly herbal and green flavors on the tannic, drying finish. Drink now through 2012.
