(the yield in 2004 was down 75% from a normal year; just bottled) Saturated black-ruby. Brooding, high-toned aromas of blueberry and blackberry. High-toned, sweet and extremely concentrated, with powerful brambly dark berries lifted by a peppery nuance. Superripe, hugely tannic wine that retains just enough freshness to maintain its balance.

Pure heaven. Incredibly fruit loaded, complex, integrated, the higher alcohol totally sublimated in this chewy fruit blockbuster, tannins seem so soft. This wine is spectacular now but I suspect has a long life ahead.

About This Producer


Making "big reds" has been Larry Turley's passion since giving up his co-ownership of Frog's Leap Winery in 1993. Turley Wine Cellars is run by Larry and his wife Suzanne. Larry's sister, winemaker Helen Turley, made the wines here until 1995. Now the honor goes to Ehren Jordan, who also makes wines for Neyers. With a focus on producing old-vine Zinfandel and Petite Sirah, Turley sources fruit from vineyards some of which date back to the late 1800s and early 1900s. Both the Zinfandels and Petite Sirahs have a dark, saturated, inky color, with intense fruit flavors that make unforgettable statements about the power and complexity these varieties may attain.
