    ($42; 16.1% alcohol) Full, deep red. Musky dark cherry on the nose. Sweet and thick on the palate, with jammy cherry/berry flavors that come off as a bit crude following the perfumed Ueberroth bottling. This impressively plush zinfandel could use a bit more clarity and definition.

    Strong earthy, meaty, smoked game, and underbrush characteristics are present in the dark plum-colored 2008 Zinfandel Dusi Vineyard. This outstanding Zinfandel reveals a more herbal, spicy personality.

    small nose of dusi fruit, a little chocolate when first opened. then settled into a very mellow zin fruit groove. not nearly as ripe as anticipated, very food friendly.

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.
