Reviews For This Wine

International Wine Cellar | 88(+?)?

Full red. Subdued nose offers exotic spices, pepper and fresh herbs; smells like a wine vinified with stems. Then juicy, spicy and fairly deep but a bit youthfully musclebound and not yet showing the lift of the best 2005s from this producer. The tannins are distinctly peppery. Perhaps in an awkward stage today.

A new offering from the top of Howell Mountain is the 2005 Zinfandel Cedarman Vineyard. Displaying crisp acidity along with blue fruit, forest floor, pepper, and mossy elements, it possesses more density, richness, glycerin, and body than most 2005s. Previously recommended: As indicated last year, 2004 was a terrific vintage for Turley Zinfandels. If they can still be found, I would opt for purchasing them over their lighter 2005 counterparts.

Barely tamed, this Zinfandel offers wild berry, wild flower and sage aromas and zesty layers of plum, game and toasty black pepper flavors.

Another well-balanced zin from Turley. Spicey, ripe dark berry and blackberry fruit. Seamlessly integrated tannins. Long, flavorful finish.

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.
