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...
90-92 Points | International Wine Cellar , May/June 2013
(Larry Turley bought this property next to his winery north of St. Helena in 2009 and promptly pulled out the merlot and replanted it to cabernet sauvignon; aged in one-third new oak, vs. 20% for the zinfandels here; tasted from tank a day or two prior to bottling): Good full red. Nice lift to the aromas and flavors of currant and pepper. Sweet, supple and scented, in a gentle, seamless style. An herbal quality contributes to the wine's juicy character and light touch. Finishes seamless and persistent, with noteworthy purity of flavor. "I actually like it," says zin man Turley.
