"The 2019 Zinfandel Ueberroth Vineyard is a powerhouse. It will appeal most to readers who enjoy potent, rich wines. Inky dark fruit, leather, spice, tobacco and dried herbs add to the wine's somber personality. As always, this old-vine Paso Robles conveys tremendous power, heft and substance. -- Antonio Galloni"

"The 2019 Zinfandel Ueberroth Vineyard, medium ruby-purple in color, explodes with gregarious stone fruit and berry preserves aromas, with earthy accents. The palate is silky and deeply fruited, with fresh, tricolored fruits and a perfumed, fresh finish. 2,052 cases produced."

The Wine
Planted in 1885, 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.

The Estate
Turley Wine CellarsTurley Wine Cellars was founded in Napa Valley by Larry Turley in 1993. Because Larry has never met an old vine vineyard he didn't like, Turley now makes 34 separate wines from 38 different vineyards, some with vines that date back to the late 1800s. Often weak and decaying, these old vine vineyards require extra care and attention in order to restore them to their former glory. After twenty-five years as an emergency room physician, Larry can now focus his resuscitative skills on the various old vineyards that comprise the wines he loves. All of the vineyards are either certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers or somewhere in the process, and only natural yeasts are used in the fermentations. By focusing on old vine Zinfandels and Petite Syrahs in particular, Turley aims to both create and preserve California's unique winemaking culture.
