  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 85

    Full ruby. Black raspberry, kirsch and black pepper on the nose. Dry and inexpressive, with little sign of flavor development. Finishes slightly tart. From a large crop of very young vines that never got completely ripe.

    The opaque purple-colored 2000 Petite Syrah Estate (200 cases) exhibits aromas of ink, minerals, licorice, incense, and black fruits along with full body, huge extraction, and mouth-searing levels of tannin. Don't think about touching a bottle for at least a decade ... unless you are a masochist!

  • 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.
