  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    (the yield in 2004 was down 75% from a normal year; just bottled) Saturated black-ruby. Brooding, high-toned aromas of blueberry and blackberry. High-toned, sweet and extremely concentrated, with powerful brambly dark berries lifted by a peppery nuance. Superripe, hugely tannic wine that retains just enough freshness to maintain its balance.

    Dark, rich, dense and loamy. Reduced now, but has great structure, with loads of ripe, concentrated blackberry and huckleberry flavors that are complex and expansive, finishing with a burst of flavor and ample tannins.

    The Petite Syrah reveals a black/purple color as well as notes of graphite, smoke, blackberries, blueberries, creme de cassis, a liqueur of mineral-like intensity, and huge tannin and concentration. The 2004 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard possesses the purest fruit, density, and intensity. This is a prodigious wine that should be purchased only by those with cold cellars and good DNA for longevity as it will all age for 40-50 years.

    (the yield was just one ton per acre, the lowest of any of these vintages along with 2008, with the vines picked at the beginning of September): Bright ruby to the rim. Aromas of black plum, minerals, iron and fresh blood; this wine calls for a rare steak. At once thick and sappy, boasting extraordinary density to its sweet dark fruit and iron flavors. The very long, slowly building finishes features outstanding sweetness and salinity and extremely suave tannins. This very powerful wine is developing at a snail's pace. - Stephen Tanzer

    Pure heaven. Incredibly fruit loaded, complex, integrated, the higher alcohol totally sublimated in this chewy fruit blockbuster, tannins seem so soft. This wine is spectacular now but I suspect has a long life ahead.

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.

California is the heartland of wine production in the US, and the state that brought prestige to American wine thanks to the pioneers who built early wineries like Staglin, Beringer, Ridge, Mayacamas and Chateau Montelena in the 1800s. Its large geographic area ensures a great diversity in growing sites, varieties grown, and quality levels. Generalizations about the state's wines have numerous exceptions; however, a few key facts generally hold true—ample sunshine, dry weather during the growing season, and moderate winters prevail. Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon continue to dominate the state's production—albeit in continually smaller percentages, as growers continue to diversify. More than 100 different varieties can be found throughout the state.
