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...

Expert Reviews

94-96 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2001

Bright deep ruby. Vibrant but reticent nose hints at raspberry syrup. Fat, lush and sweet, with explosively spicy flavors of black cherry, cassis and bitter chocolate. This has wonderful creamy sweetness at its core. Finishes with chewy tannins and great persistence.

I'm spoiled. Very spoiled. The first sip I took was upsetting to me. Here is why: This is not as good as the Martinellis I've had or as good as the Turley Pringle or Earthquake-Moore from this vintage. Is it an $85 wine? Yes. But it isn't what legends are made of, and I was sorta hoping it would be.
So much in this wine

wow - this wine is a blockbuster. Steve's review nails it. Will be hard to match with any food but with this wine you don't need food.

From Mount St. Helena to the city of Napa, the valley is defined by two north-south ridgelines of the Coast Range Mountains.

Zinfandel

Zinfandel is not the rage it was in the 1980s and early 1990s, as there are now too many wines made from overripe fruit or from young vines, or overwhelmed by excessive use of new barrels. Today's Zin styles range from elegant, taut, and claret-like midweights to superripe and potty behemoths, with off-the-charts...
