International Wine Cellar Author: Stephen Tanzer Issue: Issue 132

(16% alcohol, compared to 15% to 15.7% for most of the other 2005 zins from this winery; from vines planted in 1885) Bright ruby-red. Compellingly sappy aromas of cherry, blackberry and blueberry, with a near-porty ripeness. Then flamboyantly sweet and ripe, but with superb acidity giving a penetrating quality to the wine's superb fruit. The limestone soil here gives energy-and a low 3.35 pH-to this wonderfully sweet wine. Finishes with outstanding persistence. In just a few short years, this vineyard has emerged as one of California's great zinfandel sources.

Wine Advocate Author: Robert Parker Issue: 168

A brilliant offering, the 2005 Zinfandel Ueberroth Vineyard emerges from a 19th century hillside vineyard planted in pure limestone. It offers a dense ruby/purple color, wonderful freshness, and a strong personality displaying notes of black raspberries, cassis, pepper, dried herbs, and earth. A stunner, it will be one of the longest lived 2005s, lasting for a decade or more. Previously recommended: As indicated last year, 2004 was a terrific vintage for Turley Zinfandels. If they can still be found, I would opt for purchasing them over their lighter 2005 counterparts.

Wine Spectator Author: James Laube Issue: Web

Intriguing aromas of smoky meat and briary blackberry lead to powerful and layered wild berry, blueberry and licorice flavors that end with zesty tannins.

Medium-bodied with ripe red and dark berry fruit. Pleasant white pepper notes and spice flavors add complexity. On the lighter side but nicely balanced. Decent finish.
