    (15.1% alcohol; from a cool, high-altitude site, at nearly 2,600 feet): Good dark red. High-toned perfume of blackberry, mocha, coffee, wild herbs, licorice and pepper. Dense and juicy in the mouth, with lovely aromatic lift and energy to the red berry and spice flavors. Finishes with big, chewy, slightly drying tannins that call for a couple years of patience.

    Floral raspberry and mineral aromas lead to soft and voluptuous flavors in this Zin, which comes up short on power, but remains very fruit-forward and easy to drink.

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.
