Turley Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard 2020, Paso Robles, California

This certified organic estate-owned vineyard was planted in the 1920s (by Frank Pesenti) on primarily limestone soil. Though the vines are also head-trained & dry-farmed, the soil plays the most important role in distinguishing this vineyard on the west side of Paso Robles. The wines have a lightness and aromas unique to the site, with crushed-mineral and floral characteristics not normally seen in Zinfandel. 2019 vintage – Bright, vivid red fruits, black raspberry, Sweet Tarts, and the characteristic white chalk minerality. Sleek and silken on the palate, with the traditionally lively acidity and a hint of passionfruit on the finish.
