  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    ($40; 15.6% alcohol) Medium bright red. Slightly high-toned, complex nose melds cherry, raspberry, incense, flowers and fruitcake, plus an exotic whiff of dried apricot. At once dense and juicy; like a fruit cocktail in the mouth. Not as lively on the end as in the mid-palate, but the lingering finish offers intriguing notes of currant, date, candied fig and quince paste.

    Damp earth, loamy soil, pepper, black currant, raspberry, and cherry aromas soar from the glass of the dark plum/ruby-colored 2008 Zinfandel Grist Vineyard. A sweet attack (from high alcohol and glycerin) is followed by a fleshy, earthy, spicy wine.

  • 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.
