Reviews For This Wine


 
International Wine Cellar | 93

(16.1% alcohol; from a crop level around 1.5 tons per acre, according to Jordan): Medium ruby. Aromas of kirsch , blackberry and gunflint. A juicy, extremely primary infant, with urgent, very intense crushed berry flavors dominating. Offers compelling fruit sweetness, and the superb whiplash of a finish, featuring serious but fully ripe tannins, suggests that this will reward cellaring.

I had tasted this at the Turley winery, and thought it was exceptional. Was with a group. We then opened up this varietal on two occasions and it disappointed twice. Not that it was bad, but it was just not as exceptional as I had remembered, and not in the calibur of other Zin's at this prince point. (Try Le Cuvier). Earthy nose, with a bitter finish, and strong tanins that his on the back of the throught and jaw. Not horrible but not as enjoyable as other Zins.

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.
