Review:
The 2019 Zinfandel Juvenile has a medium ruby color and aromas of earth-laced red and black berries. The palate is soft and alluring with a wealth of ripe fruit and juicy acidity, and it finishes long and uplifted. It's a very approachable style this vintage. 15,670 cases produced.

Review:
The 2019 Zinfandel Juvenile is sleek, polished and wonderfully nuanced. Silky tannins and lifted aromatics give the 2019 so much immediacy and overall appeal. Crushed red berry fruit, spice, cedar and leather add pretty shades of nuance, with floral notes that perk up the finish. This is an especially refined version of the Juvenile, Turley's young-vine, entry-level offering. -- Antonio Galloni
