  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    ($42) Good deep red. Pinot-like red fruits and flowers on the nose, complicated by fruity peppercorn and an exotic suggestion of white fruits. Then juicy, floral and penetrating, with lovely lift to the strawberry, raspberry and spice flavors. Finishes with fine-grained tannins and excellent verve and lingering floral perfume.

  • Wine Advocate | Rating: 93

    An impressive effort, the dark ruby/purple-tinged 2008 Zinfandel Vineyard 101 possesses notes of crushed rocks, smoke, raspberries, black cherries, currants, and sagebrush. This full-bodied, luscious, deep, concentrated 2008 is capable of lasting 7-8 years.

  • 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.
