  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($28) Good saturated ruby. Superripe black raspberry and blackberry aromas offer good lift. Then juicy, tight and a bit high-toned, with firm black fruit flavors. On the lean side, though, and currently showing limited dimension.

    The opaque purple-hued, medium-bodied 2004 Charbono Tofanelli Vineyard reveals blueberry and bitter chocolate-like aromas and flavors along with hints of new saddle leather and fresh earth. This impressive Charbono can be enjoyed over the next 3-5 years.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 87

    Tight and sturdy, with firm, muscular tannins wrapped around a core of mineral and earth-laced blackberry flavors. Lots of pepper and spice. Dense and concentrated.

  • 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.
