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; this certified organic vineyard was planted in the 1920s): Medium red. Classic zin aromas of blackberry, raspberry, red licorice and black pepper, plus hints of blackberry liqueur and fresh herbs. Juicy, precise and light on its feet, with strong acidity and a hint of orange zest contributing to the impression of energy and cut. Essentially a delicate style of zin but closes with firm tannic spine. The pH here is a low 3.42: Tegan Passalacqua notes that this wine can rival the Ueberroth Vineyard bottling for acidity.
