    (15.1% alcohol): Bright medium red. Inexpressive nose hints at cherry, licorice and pepper. Supple but youthfully sullen, showing subtle sweetness but limited primary fruit. Not at all heavy, but I find this wine curiously flat and lacking in aromatic interest. The lightly saline finish features dusty tannins. I tasted two similar bottles.

    Supple and jammy, with cherry pie and spicy caramel aromas and soft flavors of raspberry and toasted spice. Drink now through 2018. 900 cases made.

    The 2012 Zinfandel Turley Estate comes from the estate's youngest vines having been planted in 2006, and already certified organic. The wine shows lots of berry fruit, earth and pepper as well as a full-bodied mouthfeel.

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.
