($32) Deep red. Peppery, slightly high-toned aromas of raspberry and nutty oak, with hints of exotic fruits. Supple on entry, then rather closed in the middle, with a distinctive flavor of fruity peppercorn. Finishes dry-edged and pungent. An intriguing style, but not for those who expect a mouthful of fresh berries from their zinfandels.

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.
