  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    (14.7% alcohol; includes 1% viognier): Saturated ruby. Ethereal aromas and flavors of stone fruits, orange zest and flowers; this would be interesting to serve in a black glass. Smooth and lush in the mouth, but with serious acidity giving lift to the middle palate. Wonderfully aromatic if rather idiosyncratic petite sirah with distinctly elegant tannins for the variety. Not the last word in density but very long on the aftertaste.

    The 2010 Petite Syrah Turley Estate is utterly convincing from the very first taste. Waves of inky black fruit, tar, licorice, menthol and violets hit the palate as the wine shows off its massive pedigree. Juicy, expressive and beautifully perfumed, the Estate brings together all of the best elements of the Turley style. A huge, powerful finish rounds things out. This is a great showing. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2025.

  • 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.
