94 points "The 1995 Zinfandel Whitney Tennessee Vineyard (16.5% alcohol, from a vineyard planted in 1898) exhibits a dense black/ruby color, followed by a sensational sweet, pure, black-cherry, raspberry, mineral, and peppery-scented nose. Full-bodied, with copious quantities of fruit, glycerin, and extract, this wine is a blockbuster Zinfandel that manages to conceal its exceptionally high alcohol. Mouthfilling, with multiple layers, and a sensationally complex, four-dimensional personality. The finish, which lasts for over 30 seconds, is explosive. I would opt for drinking this Zinfandel over the next 5-8 years, as one of the Turley's 1995s are more forward than the 1994s. Amazing! The 1995 Zinfandels are the products of extraordinary vineyards and genius winemaking - no doubt about it." Best 1997-2005

90 points "Young and tight, with a rich, complex core of blueberry, blackberry and cherry flavors, turning smooth and polished on the finish. (JL)"
