    Playing it closer to the vest, but still impressive is the 2014 Zinfandel Duarte Vineyard, which comes from sandy soils as well as vines planted between 1890 and 1930 in Contra Costa County. This is another heady Zinfandel (15.5% alcohol) that exhibits a nice, dark ruby color and loamy soil undertones intermixed with blueberry, strawberry and cherry. It seems to be slightly more reserved and tighter, but spicy and rich. This seems like a candidate to improve for another several years and drink beautifully for another 7-8.

    The 2014 Zinfandel Duarte Vineyard has developed into a lovely wine. Succulent dark cherry, plum, leather, cedar, menthol, licorice and sweet spices flesh out in an effortless, juicy Syrah to drink now and over the next handful of years. The Duarte presents a decidedly roasted, meaty quality in this vintage. The heat of the vintage gives the Duarte its weight. Duarte is a blend of four vineyards; Evangelho, Mori and Salvador.(if this is a blend of 4 vineyards is the name Duarte Vineyards or just Duarte?)

  • 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.
