  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

    A jammy, zesty red, delivering lively flavors of berry pie, smoky white pepper and licorice that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2025. 900 cases made.

    Blackberry and blackcurrant fruit, slightly lower acidity, and a big, fleshy, full-bodied, multi-layered mouthfeel characterize the 2013 Zinfandel Dogtown Vineyard from Lodi. This vineyard was planted in 1944 on rolling hills largely composed of volcanic soils and come clay. The 2013 is a terrific example of Dogtown and stands out as one of the great successes Larry Turley and his winemaking team have had in this vineyard they have farmed for so long. The alcohol is heady (15.9%), but again, it throws the myth of excessive alcohol under the bus. The wine has no heat, heaviness or cloying character whatsoever. Beautifully textured, full-bodied, opulent, and one of the sexiest of a fabulous portfolio of seductive wines, this is a knockout example to drink over the next 5-7 years. In fact, I would go so far as to say this might be one of the all-time greatest Zinfandels ever produced in Lodi, but it is not without some heady competition.

  • 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.
