    From the estate, the 2013 Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard (15.9%) comes from vines planted in the 1920s on primarily limestone soil. This wine smells like an exploding black cherry fruit bomb. Gorgeous notes of kirsch liqueur and raspberries, an almost laser-like minerality and crispness are present in this full-bodied, beautiful wine, which seems remarkably light on its feet for its power and richness. Blind-tasted, this wine could easily pass for an old vine Grenache from a Mediterranean climate - it's that Grenache-like. This full-bodied, stunningly pure beauty is another great success for Turley in 2013. Drink it over the next decade.

    Precise and intensely structured, with distinctive aromas of savory raspberry and iron-tinged mineral that lead to complex flavors of smoky plum, licorice and grilled herb. The tannins are big but zesty. Drink now through 2027. 2,500 cases made.

    The 2013 Zinfandel Pesenti Vineyard captures the essence of Paso Robles in its intense power and huge fruit. The Pesenti is not at all subtle, and, as is often the case, the alcohol is a bit evident, but it certainly is not lacking in personality, that much is certain. I am sure some readers will find more pleasure here, but in my view the Pesenti skews a bit towards the heavier side of things.

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.
