  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($35; roussanne with 35% viognier and 5% grenache blanc) Pale gold. Aroma of apricot nectar. Sweet, fat, tactile and ripe, but with a bit of alcoholic warmth. The flavor of apricot nectar is joined by lemon and peach notes. Not especially complex but kept fresh by sound acidity.

    Appealing for its aromas of jasmine, citrus, soft apricot, fig and fresh anise flavors that build to a spicy, minerally finish. Viognier, Roussanne and Grenache Blanc.

    The dry white, the 2005 The White Coat, is a blend of 60% Roussanne and 40% Grenache Blanc and Viognier. Gorgeous aromas of honeysuckle, rose petals, lanolin, and tropical fruit emerge from this full-bodied beauty.

    Fat, high alcohol. Too much oak. A little bit of ripe fruit and apples, a lot of vanilla and butter. Meh.

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.
