Turley, Kirschenmann Vineyard Zinfandel 2020 Lodi

16

Now in its second iteration, the Kirschenmann is particularly close to the team’s hearts as their winemaker, Tegan Passalacqua, owns and farms this vineyard. The ungrafted vines were planted in 1915 in the silica-rich sandy soils of the east side of the Mokelumne River AVA. Thanks to the river’s cool waters and delta breezes, these head-trained, dry-farmed vines are constantly protected from the heat.
Very classy, refined Zinfandel. Has sweetness of fruit but balanced with attractive spice, dark berry, enough acidity and fine tannins. Good stuff. (AWH)
