  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 91

    (15.9% alcohol): Good full red. Highly aromatic, subtly complex nose combines dark raspberry, menthol, Christmas spices and orange peel. Supple, savory and very ripe but still with good menthol and spice lift. This densely packed, very rich zinfandel finishes with serious but even tannins and notes of chocolate and licorice. Suggests a rather wide range of ripeness, which is hardly rare for zinfandel.

    Another mountain Zin is the 2012 Zinfandel Mead Ranch from Atlas Peak. One of the stars of the vintage, it exhibits oodles of fruit and richness.

  • 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.
