89 points "(15.6% alcohol): Medium ruby. Dark berries, orange peel and earth on the nose. Dense and sappy but quite tightly wound, with black fruit and licorice flavors dominating. Doesn't have quite enough mid-palate pliancy and flesh to support its serious tannins, and thus a tad dry on the back today. Will this come into better balance with aging?"

97 points "A Howell Mountain Zinfandel, the 2013 Zinfandel Cedarman Vineyard is a proprietary blend of Zinfandel from both the Rattlesnake Ridge and Dragon Vineyards. A tiny bit of Petite Syrah and Syrah makes it into the final blend. This is profound wine. Inky ruby/purple, with notes of blackcurrants, blackberries and a floral component as well, this full-bodied, stunningly rich, concentrated and structured Zinfandel is loaded. Dense and powerful (15.8% alcohol), the wine will last for 10-15 or more years. This is a great, great effort in what looks to be an unreal vintage in terms of quality for Turley. With a finish that goes on for a good 40-45 seconds, this is amazing stuff. (97+)." Best 2015-2030
