Professional Reviews For This Wine


Wine Advocate | Rating: 92-94

Both the 2009 Petite Syrah Turley Estate and 2009 Petite Syrah Pesenti Vineyard are outstanding, full-bodied, powerful wines that possess slightly more civilized personalities. However, they also reveal less intensity and potential for development beyond 20 years. As I have said so many times, Petite Sirah is by far the most underrated varietal in California, so it is reassuring to see how many producers continue to make remarkable wines with around 13-14% alcohol as well as 20-40+ years of aging potential.

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.

Wine Varietal: Petite Sirah


Once thought to be a relative of Syrah, this red variety actually shares DNA with the Durif grape. Wines made from Petite Sirah (or Petite Syrah) are robust, tannic, and darkly-colored. It is bottled both as a single variety and used in blends to add body. Petite Sirah grows best in warmer climates such as Argentina and California's Sonoma, Paso Robles, Amador, Mendocino, and Napa regions. Typical descriptors for Petite Sirah include black pepper, jam, and blueberry.
