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...
93 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2013
(from a vineyard originally planted in the 1890s; a field blend of 14 red and 12 white varieties, including a good amount of muscadelle): Very bright deep ruby. Bright nose dominated by strawberry and licorice. Expressive and powerful, with chewy, slightly exotic black fruit, strawberry and spice flavors complicated by a sexy stone fruit element (the white grapes comprise 10% to 15% of the blend, according to winemaker Passalacqua). Hugely tannic and primary, but with captivating, almost muscaty perfume. Really one of a kind.
