    ($38) Bright medium ruby. Captivating nose melds cherry pit, black raspberry, black tea and Christmas spices. Sweet and silky but impeccably focused, with a lovely floral scent lifting the slightly exotic dark berry flavors. This boasts terrific fruit and finishes with ripe tannins and terrific persistence. The two new releases from the Hayne Vineyard do not appear to be up to normal standards, but the two examples from the Turley Estate Vineyard are singing today.

    All five of Turley's 2008 Petite Syrahs (they do not spell it 'Sirahƒ?_) are extraordinary, and I could probably write the same tasting notes for each. My favorites include the Hayne Vineyard and Library Vineyard, followed by the Pesenti Vineyard, which shows more chalky graphite characteristics. They all possess huge aromas of blackberries, blueberries, and ink, massive fruit concentration, enormous body, and a lot less alcohol than the Zinfandels (a character of this varietal). Readers who purchase any of these cuvees should forget them for 10 years, and drink them over the following 25-30 years. They will handsomely repay the investment in patience.

  • 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.
