    Both the 2012 Zinfandel Duarte and 2012 Zinfandel Salvador are deep and richly fruity with the Salvador seemingly more intense than the open-knit, loamy, peppery, spicy Duarte.

    Dark, bright red. Briary redcurrant and raspberry aromas show a faintly stewed character. Creamy in the mouth and a bit undifferentiated but not overly sweet. Possesses decent acidity and finishes with a fine dusting of tannins but I wanted a bit more personality.

    Floral and dusty raspberry aromas lead to soft, jammy flavors of cherry, smoky bay leaf and spice.

    Better on day 3, this new zin was not packed with heat, more refined in style with a zip of dr. pepper, cola, and minerals. Bright purple with spice plum notes. Very nice.

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.
