Turley is well known for their Zinfandels that are bold and balanced that age well. The winery is the only place to buy the wines and is hidden away south of Paso Robles on the way to San Luis Obispo - worth a visit. May 2008: Visited Turley again to check out the winery. Good friendly service and nice wines. Worth visiting. Wine club has a two year waiting list!! Only four Zinfandels are available to taste at the winery out of a list of 13. I would love to have tried the others but not to be. We bought a variety of bottles to taste at a later date

Very nice wine. One of the better Zinfandels I have tried. This is the disadvantage of not trying the wine in the tasting room. Beautiful fruit and finish. Just annoyed that I don't have any more!!

I really enjoyed the 2005 Juvenile Zinfandel. Good fruit and nice finish. A lighter style Zin but great with some bbq. Drinking well right now.
