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...

(15.5% alcohol; from an Oakley vineyard on sand and quartz soil that dates back to 1896): Bright red with ruby highlights. Sappy, sophisticated nose hints at black raspberry and licorice. Intensely flavored and aromatically pure, with the raspberry flavors given a distinctly savory quality by strong peppery acidity. With a relatively low pH of 3.5, this offers a lovely light touch in spite of its serious density. Finishes perfumed and long, with suave, lightly peppery tannins. Built for aging.
