  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    (15.5% alcohol; from an Oakley vineyard on sand and quartz soil that dates back to 1896): Bright red with ruby highlights. Sappy, sophisticated nose hints at black raspberry and licorice. Intensely flavored and aromatically pure, with the raspberry flavors given a distinctly savory quality by strong peppery acidity. With a relatively low pH of 3.5, this offers a lovely light touch in spite of its serious density. Finishes perfumed and long, with suave, lightly peppery tannins. Built for aging.

    A brooding Zinfandel, with aromas of herbs de Provence and black raspberry, offering dense flavors of ripe black cherry, licorice and smoked spice. The tannins are a bit rustic on the finish. Needs time.

  • 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.
