    ($38) Saturated ruby to the rim. Knockout nose combines crushed berries, pepper and roasted meat, all lifted by an exotic whiff of peach pit. Penetrating acidity gives this a youthful toughness today, with the dark berry liqueur flavors perked up by captivating white fruit notes (no doubt due to a bit of viognier in the blend). The rather powerful tannins call for several years of aging. This splendid petite sirah (spelled |syrah| on the label) may ultimately merit an even higher score but it's tough going today.

    Turley's Petite Syrahs are about as good as they get. The 2007 Petite Syrah Turley Estate is made from a clone that was taken from the Hayne Vineyard. It exhibits an inky/purple color as well as an extraordinary bouquet of incense, blueberry and blackberry liqueur, spring flowers, and wet stones. It is a dense, full-bodied, enormously endowed red that is best forgotten for 5-6 years, then drunk over the following three 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.
