2002 Turley Duarte Vineyard Zinfandel
Few other producers can equal what Larry Turley accomplishes with Contra Costa Zinfandel from the Duarte Vineyard. From ungrafted ancient vines planted in pure sand (Turley says it looks like a beach) there are 400 cases of the powerhouse 2002 Zinfandel Duarte Vineyard (400 cases; 16.7% alcohol). Full-bodied and dense with no hotness but copious quantities of raspberries blackberries balsam wood pepper and Provencal herbs this is a rich layered hedonistic turn-on. It can be enjoyed over the next 5-6 years. Source: Wine Advocate
