Old Vine Expressions Up to 120+ Years of Age. Extremely Limited in 2015 - Typically Reserved for Mailing List – They Will Sell Out!
“Even with the ever increasing number of wines, my tastings at Turley are always among the highlights of the year for many reasons, including the diversity in the wines, but also the team's commitment to preserving and extolling the virtues of California's heritage vineyard sites. Larry Turley, Tegan Passalacqua and their team are doing work of historic significance. Pricing remains exceedingly fair considering the quality of what goes into the bottle.” Antonio Galloni
Today marks the debut of one of the most distinctive California wines, and bottle for that matter, that got many of us started on drinking and collecting zinfandel. The Zachys team just uncorked a bottle of the 2015 Juvenile and we appreciate the classic zinfandel notes in a more delicate style. Antonio Galloni released his notes on the 2015s from Turley Wine Cellars, calling the tasting “among the highlights of the year.” And while we wait for Robert Parker to release his ratings, we are offering what we expect to once again be among the highest rated zinfandels from the vintage.
It should be noted that these are among the most difficult wines to obtain by the now iconic white beard producer. 2015 was another dry vintage, and the drought-like conditions yielded less fruit and put these historic old vines on the edge of extinction. Please note, for 2015, allocations have been reduced, once again, and we simply did not receive as much as in years past. However, these wines remain some of the most distinctive big reds, packed with power, character, and complexity that manage to display brilliant elegance. Zachys is offering these extremely limited production finds on a first come, first served basis.
Enjoy these highly anticipated releases from one of the most prominent zinfandel producers! Special pricing is valid through April 25th or while wines remain available.
All my best,
