($42) Bright medium ruby. Primary black fruits and baking spices on the nose; hints at a syrupy sweetness. Densely packed but also sappy and penetrating, with powerful but rather muscular fruit and a firm spine from the iron-rich soil. Rather austere today and not especially fleshy or sweet. Like tasting a barrel sample. Finishes with big, building tannins.

The 2001 Zinfandel Grist Vineyard's deep ruby/purple color is followed by dusty aromas of balsam wood, black fruits, and damp forest floor. It possesses beautiful purity, elegance, and for those who complain about high alcohol, a modest (by Turley's standards) 15% alcohol. Medium-bodied, with a more restrained, measured style than one expects from Turley, it will drink well for 5-6 years.

This is the best Grist in years. Deep, nearly opaque red purple colored wine with lots of thin nicely pigmented legs. A sexy nose of white chocolate, plum, mint, and raspberry syrup with black pepper shadings. Luscious in the mouth with sweetened tomato confit, dark fruits, and spice flavors. Acidity is a touch high (even at this level of ripeness) so a year in the cellar will improve this wine. Simply delicious.
