Very limited Turley Zinfandel.

94+ Points Robert Parker: "From a site located on the outskirts of Lodi in the beginning of the foothills on volcanic and clay soils, the 2016 Zinfandel Dogtown Vineyard exhibits a complex nose of dried herbs, sage, cherries and raspberries. This dry-farmed vineyard planted in 1944 is the lowest yielding in Turley's portfolio, and the tiny clusters it produces show in the wine's dense, layered, richly tannic profile. It's one of the best candidates for sustained bottle age in the range this year...

...One of California's great wineries, Larry Turley's Turley Wine Cellars continues to play a critical role in safeguarding the Golden State's viticultural heritage, saving old, head-trained and sometimes own-rooted vineyards from destruction. With fully 29 different bottlings, Zinfandel (often complemented by small amounts of other co-planted varieties, such as Carignan and Grenache) is the standard-bearer here, though Turley also does a fantastic job with other varieties, most obviously Petite Syrah. Given how distinctive each of the single-vineyard bottlings is, it's tempting to suggest (though some will no doubt think it heretical) that Zinfandel might be the variety best adapted to expressing "terroir" in California."
