    Anyone who has visited Turley Cellars knows that the winery is right off Route 29, just north of St. Helena, seven miles south of Calistoga. The vineyard in their backyard produced the 2013 Zinfandel Turley Estate (15.7%). A young-vine, dry-farmed Zinfandel from head-pruned, organic vines planted in 2006, this is another Châteauneuf du Pape look-alike. Peppery, roasted meat, blackcurrant, black cherry and garrigue smells dominate this wine, which has a distinctive Mediterranean personality even though the closest body of water is Lake Hennessy, and the Pacific Ocean is a drive two to three hours west. Rich, full-bodied, and clearly one of the great Estate Zinfandels Larry Turley has made to date, this is beauty to drink now or to cellar and drink over the following decade. It’s a stunner – multi-dimensional, complex and – do I dare use the word? – delicious.

  • 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.
