Turley Zinfandel Judge Bell Vineyard 2020
VINTAGE : 2020
COUNTRY : USA
REGION/APPELLATION : California, Sierra Foothills, Amador County
VARIETALS : Zinfandel
As our Amador winery is located on Bell Road, we named this wine for the eponymous (and notorious) Judge Bell, who presided over the nearby town of Plymouth during its Gold Rush heyday. Harking from own-rooted vines planted in 1907, the wine shows quintessential Amador granitic tannins and briary fruits.
Ungrafted vines planted 1907 in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Primarily spice-driven, with savory notes of garrigue, red rose petals, red fruits, and crushed stone. Deeply pleasurable texture, medium-bodied and chock full of spice and well-integrated granitic tannins; a phenomenal pairing with game birds like pheasant or quail. Light decant and/or lay it down for a spell and will drink well at 55°-60°F.
