Very deep red colour, almost purple;notes of spice and black fruits on the nose; sweet and spicey with pepper and black cherries on the palate, a hot alcolholic finish ( as befits the 15.5 degrees)

Acid fans, welcome to your dojo, you?ve certainly hit gold w/ the ?05 Turleys! This could perhaps be the most high-toned, exceptionally bright Zin I've ever tasted. The nose is crammed w/ citrus blossom, pomegranate, dried cranberry sauce, briar and damp earth. It hits the palate w/ brisk minerality in follows through to the finish w/ linear direction and fresh cut. To my palate, this needs a bit more weight, density and more primal character to speak Turley, but its style is sure to find fans (as is its balance and restraint)
