(16.2% alcohol) Good full ruby. Black cherry and violet aromas suggest a hugely rich wine. Then fat, sweet and thick, with great depth of texture and chocolatey richness. Today, though, this seems almost too ripe for its own good, and the fruit is in the background. Finishes with huge chocolatey tannins. This was just bottled, and this is not the best time to be tasting this. Turley's Hayne Vineyard zinfandel is always one of my favorites but for now I will defer judgment.

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.
