  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    Rich and briary, with wild berry and toasty sage aromas and complex, layered flavors of raspberry and cracked pepper, plus hints of mineral and roasted anise. The tannins on the finish are big but ripe.

    Slightly fleshier, but still made in an upfront style is the 2009 Zinfandel Tofanelli Vineyard. Sweet black cherry, raspberry, lavender, Provencal herb, pepper and spice notes emerge from this silky textured, fleshy Zin.

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.
