    ($38) Bright medium ruby. Pungent aromas of resin, pepper, game, chocolate and flowers, along with an exotic note of apricot. Broad, superripe and quite dry, with intriguing suggestions of dried herbs. In fact, this actually includes some muscat grapes, said Ehren Jordan. Finishes with huge tannins. (I will withhold judgment on the Rattlesnake Ridge Howell Mountain Petite Sirah, which showed a strong saline quality and finished with superb length but huge, drying tannins.)

    Much softer, fleshier than the Turley Estate, and more to my liking was the 2006 Petite Sirah Library Vineyard. This is a beauty that has deep ruby/purple color and notes of violets intermixed with asphalt, blueberry, blackberry, and licorice. This wine should be more approachable than these other Petite Sirahs over the next 2-3 years, but last for at least two decades.

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.
