  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 88

    ($40; 15.8% alcohol) Good ruby-red. Liqueur-like aromas of kirsch and chocolate-covered raisin. Big, broad and rich but not overly sweet, showing a porty aspect and less energy than the Zampatti. This chocolatey and rather alcoholic zinfandel could use more definition and personality.

    The brilliant dark ruby/plum-colored 2008 Zinfandel Rattlesnake Ridge exhibits lots of blueberry, blackberry, and forest floor notes, but the blue fruit spectrum of aromas and flavors dominate. Full-bodied with sweet tannin and a layered, textured mouthfeel, it should drink well for a decade.

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.
