WA 96 Pts - According to Robert Parker - "From a high-elevation vineyard in Atlas Peak, the 2013 Zinfandel Mead Ranch (16.1% alcohol) has its origins at a site planted in 1880, although Larry Turley’s block dates only from 1970. The vines are head-pruned and the soils purely volcanic. One the profound Zinfandels from Turley in 2013, this wine is locked-and-loaded, so to speak – powerful, packed, rich, and full-bodied, with blackberry, blueberry, black raspberry and cherry fruit in abundance. It is obviously full-bodied, thick, even unctuously textured, while it seems to have slightly less acidity than some of the other cuvées – or at least, that’s how it presents itself. This is a stunner to drink over the next 10-12+ years. It is a great Zinfandel and one of the most sumptuous and exotic in the portfolio." 16.1% ABV.Tasting Panel 94 Pts. - "Cranberries, orange zest, savory herbs and wild flowers abound in the 2013 Zinfandel Mead Ranch. Medium in body and nuanced, the Mead Ranch impresses for its delicate, feminine personality and lifted aromatics. Intensely bright, saline-inflected notes flow through to the beautifully delineated finish.
