  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($28) Medium-deep red-ruby. Pungent aromas of bitter cherry, blueberry pie and spicy herbs. Juicy, leanish and a bit youthfully sharp, with very dry flavors of raspberry, cherry and licorice. I'm not wild for this style.

    As for the lighter reds in the portfolio, there is the 2006 Charbono, one of the few made in California that merits attention. This wine shows nice notes of animal fur, pure berry fruit, a hint of jamminess, but low acidity and a nice textural mouthfeel. It is a classy bistro red to drink over the next several years.

  • 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.
