Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 89(+?)

($38) Dark red. Crushed blackberry, licorice and a whiff of leather that blew off with air. Dense, chewy and peppery, with a restrained sweetness and complicating notes of flowers and spices. Finishes firm and a bit clenched, with a suggestion of dried fruits.

Absolutely sensational, the dense ruby/purple-colored 2008 Zinfandel Dogtown Vineyard may be the finest effort I have yet tasted from this vineyard. Its fruit intensity even surpasses the brilliant 2007. Blackberry, black raspberry, roasted Provencal herb, and pepper aromas are followed by a meaty, thick, chewy Zinfandel with admirable purity, length, texture, and richness.

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.
