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...

(15.1% alcohol; Turley started picking these vines on September 10 in 2011!): Bright ruby-red. Highly distinctive nose combines blueberry, blackberry, strawberry, graphite, spices and flowers; almost Rhone-like. Then silky, dry and powerful on the palate, with intense black fruit flavors accented by wild spices. Finishes with serious Howell Mountain tannins and excellent length. This very spicy wine begs for meat cooked on the grill.
