    (15.5% alcohol): Good medium ruby. Pungent, steely aromas and flavors of blackberry, spicecake, chocolate, orange peel and white pepper; almost syrah-like. Dense and sweet in the mouth but with terrific aromatic lift thanks to firm acidity and a strong white pepper quality. Really lovely definition and perfume here. Exhilaratingly long, palate-cleansing finish. I never would have guessed this wine had a pH of 3.9. Superb zinfandel.

    The 2010 Zinfandel Mead Ranch opens with a precise, beautifully delineated bouquet laced with sweet red berries, mint, tobacco and incense. Delineation, purity and precision are some of the qualities that distinguish the Mead Ranch. An expressive, creamy finish rounds things out in style. The Mead Ranch is one of many standouts in this lineup of 2010s from Turley. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025.

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.
