91 points "One of my favorites is the 2006 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard, which is actually from some of the younger vines that Turley bottles separately. This Howell Mountain offering tips the scales at nearly 16% alcohol and offers a southern Rhone Valley-like notes of lavender, kirsch liqueur, pepper, spice, and loads of blackberry and sweet cherry fruit. The wine has decent acidity, ripe tannin, and a long, heady finish. This is a seductive, complex, and beautiful Zinfandel. (91-93)" Best 2008-

89 points "Exotic aromas of huckleberry and loamy white pepper, accented by sage and underbrush lead to layered and densely focused wild berry, licorice, and bay leaf flavors that finish with rustic tannins." Best 2009-2013
