92 points "Turley’s 2011 Zinfandel Rattlesnake Ridge is impressive. Dense, rich and powerful, the 2011 is beautifully crafted, with great balance of fruit, acidity and structure. Layers of black currants, sweet tobacco and tar are layered into the vibrant, nuanced finish. This vivid Zinfandel should drink well pretty much upon release, but also has the stuffing to develop beautifully in bottle. (92-94)." Best 2013-2021

91 points "Dense and powerful, with aromas of black cherry and Asian spice that lead to concentrated flavors of black currant, mineral and fresh sage. Tannins tighten the finish. " Best 2014-2018

92 points "The same can be said for the 2009 Zinfandel Rattlesnake Ridge, a high elevation, cooler climate vineyard. Its dark ruby/purple hue is followed by notes of blueberries, blackberries and damp, mossy, forest floor scents. The wine possesses fabulous fruit, admirable ripeness and a rich, full-bodied mouthfeel and plenty of power as well as fruit. (92-94)."
