Turley is a winery that focuses on small production “Big Red” wines from old vine Zinfandel and Petite Syrah, based in St. Helena in the Napa Valley, California. The winery is a family operation helmed brother and sister duo Larry and Helen Turley, founded in 1993. Their prestigious wines are in constantly high demand, and their private wine club has a two-year waiting list. The wines are produced from several vineyards, with vines dating back to the 1800s. Each terroir lends its own character to the wines, and they are given separate labels according to location each vintage. The vineyards are located in Napa, Sonoma, Paso Robles, Lodi, Howell Mountain and Contra Costa.  Read less

92-94 Points - Wine Advocate: There are 250 cases of the 2002 Petite Syrah Estate (14% alcohol). Made from cuttings taken from the Hayne Vineyard, this fabulous effort is one of the finest examples of this varietal I have recently tasted. Inky/blue/black/purple-colored to the rim, with a stunning bouquet of creosote, melted licorice, celestial black fruits, espresso roast, and white chocolate, this enormously-endowed wine possesses surprisingly ripe tannin. As it sits in the glass, violet and acacia flower-like scents also emerge. It has huge structure, but is oh, so backward. Do not touch a bottle for 8-9 years unless you want to do a roto rooter job on your upper GI tract. Fabulous! Anticipated maturity: 2011-2030+.

A classic old-style Petite. Dense, chewy and tannic, with dried currant, black licorice, plum jam and a floral note that give it a touch of rose petal. Fans of this style will smile as they chew their way through this rustic beauty.
