"Crushed rose petals, sweet red berries, mint and cinnamon meld together in the 2014 Zinfandel Judge Bell Vineyard. This is one of the more subtle, understated wines in the range, but all the elements are in the right place. Today, the Judge Bell is a bit hushed in its expression. -AG"
Turley Wine Cellars, 2014 Turley Zinfandel 'Judge Bell', Amador County
Turley's new winery in Amador County is located on Bell Road, we named this wine for the eponymous (and notorious) “hanging” Judge Bell, who presided over the nearby town of Plymouth during its Gold Rush heyday. Harking from vines that average 80 years of age, the wine shows quintessential Amador granitic tannins & briary fruits.
