  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 90

    (16.1% alcohol; from vines planted between 1,400 and 1,500 feet above sea level; the crop level here was 0.57 tons per acre in 2011, according to Larry Turley): Good medium red. High-toned, distinctly liqueur-like nose, with a minty topnote. Very sweet but a bit aggressive with alcohol and dominated today by high-toned mint and pepper elements. A bit too exotic for me but undeniably rich.

  • 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.
