Turley Zinfandel Ueberroth Vineyard 2021, Paso Robles, California

Turley Wine Cellars makes twenty-eight wines, the vast majority of which are single vineyard designate Zinfandels and Petite Syrahs. By focusing on old vine vineyards in particular, Turley aims to both create and preserve California’s unique winemaking culture. This wine is from a Paso Robles vineyard planted in 1885 and owned by ex-commissioner of baseball Peter Ueberroth. “Ueberroth is the oldest of our Zinfandel vineyards. Located closer to the sea than any other site we work with, you can smell the salt air from the top of the hill. These ungrafted, head-trained vines are planted on very steep limestone slopes. The high pH of the soil makes for a very high acid wine, elevating the ripe fruit flavors from this historic certified organic vineyard.” – From the Winery
