Turley Wine Cellars Zinfandel Fredericks Vineyard 2019
Hailing from 1937, these certified organic vines are some of the most unique. Just a mile and a half from the Napa border on the Sonoma side of the Mayacamas, the vines are planted along steep, contoured terraces. Finding old vineyards is rare enough, but ancient hillside head-trained vines located 900 feet up? Downright extraordinary. Concentrated black fruits with a lengthy smooth finish.
WA92: The 2019 Zinfandel Fredericks Vineyard opens with tar and savory black fruits, with graphite and earth nuances. Medium-bodied, the palate offers broody, fresh black fruits with a gently grainy structure and long, earth-laced finish.
