  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

    ($38) Superripe black fruit aromas complicated by exotic peach pit and floral nuances (this vineyard has a handful of white muscat vines intermixed). Juicy but very tightly wound, with exotic but reticent dark fruit flavors lifted by peach pit and pepper. Finishes impressively long, but with serious tannins that call for at least a few years of aging. Like the Pesenti and Turley Estate examples, this should evolve nicely for at least 12 to 15 years.

    The 2007 Petite Syrah Library Vineyard possesses higher acidity as well as a more closed personality. Although it is somewhat monolithic, it is clearly super-concentrated and deep. I'll reserve judgment until I have had another chance to look at it, but it will undoubtedly be top-flight in terms of quality. It just didn't sing as loudly as several of its siblings.

  • 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.
