(16.5% alcohol; from 95-year-old vines on a hillside on the east side of Santa Rosa) Pungent aromas of blackcurrant and Tellicherry pepper. At once juicy and supple, with black cherry and dark berry flavors lifted by piquant notes of orange peel and crushed pepper and energized by pungent minerality. Admirably concentrated and very long. The crop level here in 2007 was just 1.2 tons per acre, according to winemaker Ehren Jordan. Clearly a site to watch.

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.
