Like the (unfortunately) few other Turley Zins we have had, what struck us was the elegance and classiness of a wine with this alcohol level and power. Like liquid velvet, not hot despite its high alcohol, outstanding balance of the fruit, oak, acid. Classic layers of sweet berry, vanilla, and plum flavors caress the palate and lead to an lingering finish. Why aren't we independently wealthy so we can drink these wines all the time? The Turley Zins always seem to be memorable, top-notch, pleasure-giving wines, not 16% curiosities. - WB Team 2001-07-19
