Though the vast majority of our wines are single vineyard designates, Juvenile is actually composed of a variety of young vines that have been replanted in several of our old vine sites.We tag the younger vines then pick them separately and make a distinct wine. Juvenile vines range in age from about 6-25 years, and we pull from a selection of our best vineyards across California.

75 reviews for Turley Juvenile Zinfandel 2021

  1. Cassandra Meyers

    Balanced with black cherry, blueberry and earthy notes of cedar, briars and brambles. Seamlessly integrated with 15.2% ABV.

  2. Richard Hernandez

    Approachable young wine, fair Turley intro price. Rich fruit, spice, long finish.

  3. Jeanette Williams

    Great Turley Juvi, balanced with excellent fruit taste.

  4. Carl Lewis

    Best value on the market. Straight to the head. Rich, ripe, fruity. Unique, like Italian wines.

  5. Marge Sanders

    Approachable zin, perfect for BBQs.

  6. Dean Mcgalliard

    Improved in 18 months, fruit backed off, smoother, well balanced. Lovely, case-worthy at this price. Meatballs for dinner tonight.

  7. Hazel Stockton

    Great value with a balanced structure, restrained fruit and good acidity. Recommended for Turley first-timers.

  8. Jerry Martinez

    Turley’s Juvenile cuvée is made from grapes sourced from young vines of 27 different vineyards. Despite the intense California wildfires of 2020, the wine has a ruby color and an intense nose of red fruits, lavender, and spices. The palate is enjoyable with discreet alcohol despite its 15.2%. The tannins could be better, but for the price, it’s worth it.

  9. Randi Kochel

    A decent wine with acidity, pairs well with food. Best consumed within 3-5 years, has raspberry and rose notes but a light body.

  10. Dorothy Beard

    Amador location tasting: Rough around edges, fruit more overt than Old Vines.

  11. Brandon Veach

    Light body and medium on the dryness. Red fruit blended with black. Predominant strawberry with smooth tannins. Definitely not sweet, but not complex. It says drink me without reservations or second thoughts. Direct and enjoyable.

  12. Frederick Naples

    Straightforward and delicious, this bottle has tighter acidity and tannins this vintage. Bottle age has done it well. Enjoyable with pizza and ready to drink now.

  13. Lucila Quinn

    Tart cherry and blueberry notes with high acidity.

  14. Barbara Sheets

    Flawless integration, blackberry, wild sage, and black pepper notes. 15.5% ABV. Needs 90 minutes to open up.

  15. Sherita Bell

    Great value for money and drinking beautifully.

  16. Ethel Abadie

    Field blend is decent, but single vineyard wines prevail.

  17. Celestine Morris

    Sweet-tart fruit/berry notes with some spice. Opened up nicely with minty notes. Perfect with beef stroganoff.

  18. Viviana Leitheiser

    Nice and drinkable with good fruit, but best enjoyed in the short term.

  19. Thomas Smith

    Soft tannins, ripe fruit, and a pleasant amount of alcohol make for a thoughtful Zinfandel with just a touch more acid desired.

  20. Michelle Smith

    Firmer/tighter than expected. This has a lot of structure and was wound a bit tight. First bottle opened from the vintage and think it can age longer than most Juveniles. Mixed red and black fruits, sappy, tannins in the background. Think this has a bit of upside ahead.

  21. Rick Lyons

    Decent, but not on par with Turleys’ single vineyard wines.

  22. Michael Gonzales

    Raspberry and cranberry notes lead the way, with nicely integrated oak and hints of bramble weaving in. 15.2%, but there’s an elegance here that belies the alcohol. Solid QPR.

  23. Jerry Paskett

    No review available.

  24. Pasquale Barnes

    “Agreed with previous review.”

  25. Brian Xie

    I’m sorry, but there is no review provided for me to rewrite. Could you please provide the original review for me to work on?

  26. Martha Pascual

    Enduring excellence.

  27. Everett Woods

    Turley with age: Dark red, fruity, medium finish. Enjoyed it.

  28. Juanita Clark

    Sorry, I cannot rewrite the review as there is no review provided. Please provide the review for me to rewrite.

  29. Gwendolyn Langley

    Turley is a great cold weather wine with a lot of fruit and unexpected dryness on the finish. At $20 direct before tax and shipping, it’s a great value. Buy by the case!

  30. Denise King

    Drink now, no need for further cellaring. Enjoy!

  31. Reed Calkins

    Improved from last year’s bottle. Day 2 tasted great with integrated flavors of blue fruits, baking spice, and berry.

  32. Curtis Hitchcock

    Turley is a young and vibrant wine with pronounced cranberry and white pepper flavors, making it perfect for Boxing Day. At only $20, it’s a great value.

  33. Judy Willis

    Drinkable, yet unrecognizable as Zinfandel. Interesting with a long finish. Retains red fruit notes. Perfectly stored since winery purchase.

  34. Parker Brantley

    Affordable with great quality, Turley’s best QPR. Decant for 2 hours before enjoying this classic Zin with nice fruit. Not a PnP wine.

  35. Danny Houston

    Balanced, round, full-bodied.

  36. Janice Baca

    Improved taste, fresher nose, with more red fruit and spices. Alcohol has integrated, fruit is vibrant. Ready to drink, but can age longer.

  37. Philip Cho

    Great table wine.

  38. James Brockman

    Mellowed 2013 with berry fruit and balanced alcohol.

  39. Lauren Albin

    Excellent example of a Turley Juvi, great fruit, balance and taste.

  40. Douglas Montey

    “Great value wine.”

  41. Michele Wilson

    Young and a bit flabby. Not the best vintage I have ever had. Disappointing. I have had better at half the price.

  42. Ted Young

    Great value wine with big, juicy flavors of berries and wet stones. High ABV and perfect with red sauce pasta. Easy decision to buy.

  43. James Caruso

    Great Zinfandel, smoking good despite age.

  44. Barbra Gershon

    Great value zinfandel with balanced acidity and fruity profile. Perfect pairing for pot roast on a rainy day.

  45. Janet Adams


  46. Jennifer Hickey

    Great acidity, red fruit, and soft sweet tannins. Perfect with a cheese-steak.

  47. Mary Dulin

    Delicious fruity Zinfandel with a balanced taste and interesting finish. Great value for money.

  48. Jesse Fleming

    Delicious now, can age for years. Blackberry pie aroma with raspberry and dark chocolate notes. Decanted for two hours.

  49. James Luther

    Sediment and age apparent, red fruit flavors fleeting with heat on finish. Good QPR.

  50. Susana Taylor

    Great value for an entry-level bottle. Rich with red fruits, herbs, and a hint of oak. Balanced and not too heavy on the palate. Enjoy now or save for later.

  51. Sharon Leeder

    Harmonious with red and black fruit aroma, dark cherries and spice on palate. Drink up, won’t get better.

  52. Shawn Gamboa

    Go-to wine, always delicious. Perfect for last-minute gatherings.

  53. Eric Stevens

    Exhilarating experience.

  54. Annie Olivier

    Aged too long. Raisin taste.

  55. Paul Jones

    Great value wine, big and bold.

  56. Josephine Kshywonis


  57. Jeanette Lockett

    Well-made with all five components in harmony. Turley style in a value package. Improving over the next few years.

  58. Clifton Bugarin

    Impressive Turley Zin, with black and blue bramble fruits, white pepper, clove & dried herbs. Full-bodied, freshly acidic, lightly oaked, and medium sweet tannins. Drink now-2027.

  59. Jessica Clark


  60. John Johnson

    Exceptional vintage for Zinfandel with fresh and bright notes.

  61. Mechelle Bagby

    Clean and floral nose with sweet cherry taste and high acidity. Rough finish but expected.

  62. Tiffany Wilkerson

    The zin a mix of california “younger” zins but from what I recall young is a relative term for zinfandel and this was 6-25 years of aged plants but there are some Lodi and Alexander valley mixed in with Paso Robles and Napa but the overall ‘feel’ of the wine is darker fruit, very balanced clean cola, black berry and black cherry and not the hotter red fruits other young zins may have. Drinks fine now

  63. Lisa Powell

    Deep ruby color, red fruit on nose and palate, soft tannins. Past peak but still pleasurable.

  64. Yvonne Anders

    Fun, fruity, and approachable. Perfect with seared flank steak.

  65. Lorraine Horton

    Improved from previous bottle. Developing well. Great value at $22.

  66. Jamie Bouley

    Full-bodied, purple wine with rich fruity and oak notes. Mouth-filling and amazing value for money. Drink now or hold for a year. Perfect with pizza and cigars.

  67. Jill Hamilton

    Dark berry fruit with tight mouthfeel and clipped finish. Needs 3 more years to soften.

  68. Charles Herrera

    Better. Pleasant.

  69. Michael Thao

    Jammy, fresh and acidic.

  70. Edna Guinane

    Bottle tasted tart and bitter, will try again tomorrow.

  71. Tina Perry

    Excellent. Cinnamon, plum, and pepper notes. Drink it now.

  72. William Franklin

    Purple with subdued nose of red fruits, cocoa and pepper. Medium body, acidity with cherry, blood orange, cranberry and earth on palate. Tremendous finish. Unique but slightly underwhelming. Best over next several years.

  73. Carrie Goodson

    Purple hue with M+ body and acidity. Cocoa, pepper, and berries on the nose. 1-dimensional red fruit palate with strawberry and oak. Long finish. Enjoyable but not worth $40. Can age a few more years.

  74. Rachel Riley

    Fruit-forward with a hint of spice, perfect for young wine lovers.

  75. Ralph Fender

    Dependable and delicious, this cuvee boasts ripe fruit, balanced spice, chocolate, and tobacco notes. At an affordable price, it pairs well with any food or stands alone as a great choice.

The Zinfandel Blend grape varietal, affectionately known as "Zin," boasts a rich history and a complex flavor profile that has captured the hearts of wine enthusiasts. This dark-skinned red wine grape variety originally arrived in the United States from Europe during the early 19th century. Its initial success found strongholds in Napa and Sonoma counties, where it continues to flourish. Zinfandel's fascinating journey has uncovered intriguing connections. Extensive DNA research has confirmed its identity with Italy's Primitivo, shedding light on its shared history. Primitivo itself has Croatian origins, known as Tribidrag and Crljenak Kastelanski, further enhancing the mystique of Zinfandel's heritage.
