  • International Wine Cellar | Rating: 92

    (from a rocky vineyard located in downtown Santa Rosa): Bright, full red. Perfumed, Burgundian aromas of red raspberry, cherry and flowers. Juicy, sweet and ripe, but with brisk acidity and piquant peppery lift intensifying the berry and floral flavors. Really lovely clarity and energy here.

    The 2012 Zinfandel Zampatti Vineyard, from a site nestled in downtown Santa Rosa, is one of the overt, deeply spiced wines in the range. Cinnamon, cloves, dark red stone fruits, mint and pine lead to intensely aromatic overtones. Floral notes become more prominent through the mid-palate and finish. What a pretty wine this is.

    The pleasant 2012 Zinfandel Zampatti Vineyard shows leafy, herbal, and red berry characteristics and was the least concentrated of any of these 2012 Zins.

  • 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.
