    The 2012 Zinfandel Dusi comes from a vineyard planted in 1945, and is still farmed by the Dusi family. It is one of the stars of the vintage for Larry Turley.

    (16.3% alcohol): Riper and higher-toned on the nose than the Pesenti, hinting at blackberry and licorice. A sweet, creamy fruit bomb on the palate; in a distinctly plush style, showing terrific depth to its fruit but not quite the definition or grip of the Pesenti. In fact, this vineyard lies further inland and shows less diurnal variation than either Pesenti or Ueberroth.

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.
