  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 93

    (15.2% alcohol; this was the first zinfandel vineyard harvested on Howell Mountain in 2011, according to winemaker Tegan Passalacqua): Deep, bright ruby-red. Knockout nose combines blackberry, cracked pepper, dusty spices, musky coffee, minerals and earth. Dense, savory and dry, with terrific depth and texture to the rather uncompromising flavors of dark fruits, crushed rock and salty minerals. Serious zinfandel for aging, but austere in the early going.

    An impressive Zin, powerfully built yet complex and precise. Loaded with pepper and floral boysenberry aromas, this balances lively tannins and acidity with ripe cherry, smoky sage and anise flavors. Cellar for now.

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.
