92 points "Scorched earth, graphite, melted road tar, licorice and smoke hit the palate in Turley's 2013 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard. A big, rich wine, the 2013 is all about textural depth of fruit backed up by searing tannins that are going to need at least a few years to start softening. Hints of tobacco, game and incense add an element of exoticism on the nuanced finish. (92-94+)."

95 points "More structured with more obvious tannin, minerality, and graphite notes is the blue and black fruit-filled, dark purple-hued 2008 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard. From Howell Mountain, it is one of the strongest Zinfandels produced by Turley. The wine exhibits lots of structure as well as considerable aging potential for a Zinfandel (10+ years). It offers loads of mineral-laced blue and black fruits combined with notions of new saddle leather, crushed rocks, flowers, and berries. " Best 2013-2019
