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.

This is not wine. I'm not certain what it is. All I know is that it is nearly black, thicker than port, and amazingly good. Those who cannot get a hold of this wine (or the Turley Rattlesnake Acres Petite Sirah) should check out D'Arenberg The Dead Arm Shiraz -- this is the closest wine I've had to this -- and is actually almost as good.

About Napa Valley

Napa Valley is the most famous wine-growing area in the U.S. It begins at the base of Mount St. Helena in the north and tapers off some 30 miles to the south into the floodplain where the Napa River enters San Francisco Bay. From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.

Petite Sirah

Even though the origins of this grape are in France, California is the place to look for the best expressions of Petite Sirah. The "Petite" in the name refers not to the size of the vines but rather to the size of the grapes. In fact, the high skin to juice ratio that accompanies the small berries allows Petite Sirah to produce wines with high tannins and...
