It's not that the 2008, Turley, Duarte Zinfandel was horrible, it was pleasant enough, but it was slightly thin and, disappointingly, a little too oaky for me. Vinomaker and I acquired this bottle, and also a bottle of the Turley, 2007, Cedarman Zinfandel, in a silent auction. Thankfully, we didn't pay that much for the two bottles. I'm hoping the second bottle is better than the first.

I really like Zinfandel. I generally find this particular wine varietal's combination of raspberries and pepper to be a winning one...that is when it is made well. Unfortunately, this evening's Zinfandel selection did not deliver the goods.
