Professional Reviews For This Wine


International Wine Cellar | Rating: 89?

($35; 16.5% alcohol) Bright, deep red. Superripe, porty aromas of mocha, molasses and nuts. Fat, sweet and creamy but a bit over the top. This big, thick, peppery wine finishes with considerable power and strong tannins. I find this rather awkward.

Wine Advocate | Rating: 88-91

The 2006 Zinfandel Mead Ranch is from the cooler Atlas Peak area of southern Napa. The wine has great fruit, full body, loads of cassis, and briery raspberry notes intermixed with some pepper, soil undertones, and underbrush. The wine has fabulous ripeness, full body, and a long finish.

Wine Spectator | Rating: 90

Rustic, but showing a distinctive sense of place, with cracked pepper, wild berry and rusty red clay aromas and roasted herb and spicy loam flavors.

About This Producer


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.
