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.

  • Good story D.  Charbono is still around - both Pride and Turley make it. Fife did for a while, Edmund St. John did if I recall, and there were a few others.It's nice that people are still doing it. Maybe Coppola will bring it back to Inglenook? It's a shame that there are so few producers. People limit themselves to Cab vs Pinot Noir, and they t... Read More

  • Thought this was an interesting mailer I'd share with you all. Already forwarded the e-mail to Fox as he is one of the few champions of Dolcetto that I know. This would also fit in well with the "weekday wines" thread. Fox and I agreeing it's a good week day pasta night wine, or even a 1st wine in a flight of Northern Italian Reds. To all Best W...

Passalacqua, best known as Turley's winemaker, Kirschenmann is not only a source of stunning, elegant, red fruited Zinfandel, but it's also a bit of a rule breaker, laying as it does on the east side of Lodi. The wines here should be big and dense, and many are,... Read More

  • Turley Kirschenmann Vineyard Zinfandel 2012

    Snoothrank:

    Fruity on the nose with lovely black berry aromas framed with nuanced cinnamon, allspice, sage, and earth aromas. Open, broad, and expansive in the mouth this shows a gorgeous texture with both power and delicacy in the mouth. The flavors show a bit of herbal edge to the blackberry fruit, as this turns firm and long on the finish. A fairly spicy... Read More

  • Yep, OT is right, the last time I had Turley I bought some old vintages for a themed tasting--nothing more recent than 2003.  I did receive a gift of the Juvenile, which is Cali designated, from a more recent vintage.  Probably 2009.  Good, not great--it's the "supermarket" Turley, like R'wood Vintners Blend but 2.5x the price.  It was fine, but...
