    From Lodi, the 2005 Zinfandel Dogtown Vineyard is a soft, medium-bodied, slightly one-dimensional effort that is best consumed during its first 4-5 years of life. Previously recommended: As indicated last year, 2004 was a terrific vintage for Turley Zinfandels. If they can still be found, I would opt for purchasing them over their lighter 2005 counterparts.

    Moderately saturated medium red. Liqueur-like cherry on the nose. Sweet, lush and high-toned, with sound acids giving cut to the red berry and cherry flavors. Shows a dried fruit character on the back end and finishes with sweet, building tannins that give the finish good grip.

    Abundant with smoky, meaty aromas and dense, ripe blackberry, cracked pepper and licorice flavors that take on muscle toward the supple finish. -TF

    Ripe zin fruit as always from Turley. Wonderful concentration yet restrained and balanced. Delicious spiciness on the finish.

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.
