Product Overview

The 2017 Turley Pesenti Vineyard Zinfandel is sourced from the winery's certified organic, estate-owned vineyard that was planted in the 1920s by Frank Pesenti on primarily limestone soil. Though the vines are head-trained and dry-farmed, the soil plays the most important role in distinguishing this vineyard on the west side of Paso Robles. The wine shows tons of vibrant, ripe red fruits on the nose, with an uplifting hint of the chalky soils. The plentiful and powerful warm fruits on the palate are balanced by one of the freshest, highest natural acidities found in any red wine, leading to a satisfyingly nimble texture.

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"The Pesenti vineyard was planted in the 1920s on limestone soils. Deep ruby in color, the 2017 Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard gives savory notes of charcuterie over dried brambly fruits and crushed black cherries with hints of dried soil. Medium to full-bodied, it offers savory-laced fruits in the mouth with soft, grainy tannins and great freshness, finishing long with pretty dried flowers notes. 2,400 cases produced." -EB, 3/14/19

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"Dynamic yet sleekly elegant for a Zinfandel, with refined black cherry, grilled anise and pepper flavors that build speed and energy toward polished tannins. Drink now through 2029. 2,400 cases made." -TF, 2/29/20

(91-94) Points - Vinous
"Turley's 2017 Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard offers plenty of the exuberance that is typical of Paso Robles wines. Dark red/purplish fruit, chocolate, rose petal and lavender flesh out in this supple, incredibly inviting Zinfandel. The 2017 finishes with notable substance and depth to round things out." -AG, Dec/2018
