Turley "Library Vineyard" Napa Valley Petite Syrah 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Stephen Tanzer (International Wine Cellar): Superripe black fruit aromas complicated by exotic peach pit and floral nuances (this vineyard has a handful of white muscat vines intermixed). Juicy but very tightly wound, with exotic but reticent dark fruit flavors lifted by peach pit and pepper. Finishes impressively long, but with serious tannins that call for at least a few years of aging. Like the Pesenti and Turley Estate examples, this should evolve nicely for at least 12 to 15 years. (May/Jun 2009)

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
