About Turley Wine Cellars
When it comes to California Zinfandels, Larry Turley is the master. His are huge, exotic reds that often have head-spinning alcohol and a bit of residual sugar, but at their core, are really showcases for the rich, ripe, old-vine fruit...
92-95 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2001
Saturated black-ruby to the rim. Unforthcoming but pure aromas of dark berries, violet and dark chocolate. Less sweet than the zinfandel, and more muscular, but there amazingly dense blackberry and licorice flavors and powerful underlying spine. Shows much less oak spice character than the Hayne zin: "This wine always eats the oak early," notes Jordan. Finishes very long, with big, chewy tannins. This is a good degree and a half lower in alcohol than the Hayne zin. Superb petite sirah, but the Rattlesnake bottling may possess even more fruit.
