96 Points Robert Parker: "From a site that may soon be lost to housing development, the 2016 Zinfandel Salvador Vineyard is a lovely wine, bursting with scents of ripe cherries, cassis, plums and a subtle framing of oak. Full-bodied, deep and concentrated on the palate, it displays considerable density and depth, with an ample core of sweet, juicy fruit, framed by satiny tannins...

...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."
