Turning Leaf Vineyards
Turning Leaf is a brand produced by E & J Gallo wines in Modesto, California. The wines are accessible, value-driven whites, reds and rosé (White Zinfandel) that are available in most supermarkets and retail establishments.– Description from Amanda Schuster
Sugar and spice and all that is nice! Yummy! Sweet fruit, soft citrus, but not astringent, on the nose. Then you have buttery wood to balance the initial sweetness you breath in while taking your first sip. Great price! Definately will buy again!

I'm picking up here where I last left off, halfway through reporting on mostly the 2009 vintage in Barolo. As you can see here, and in my previous report on these wines, the vintage is a bit irregular to say the least with some powerful, structured wines being produced as well as many wines that show elevated alcohols or aggressive tannins. As I... Read More
I wrote yesterday about the 2009 vintage in Barolo and today I begin reporting on the wines tasted. with over 30 winery visits o the region last month there's a lot of wine to report on. I've included my notes below, broken down by visit in roughly chronological order. As you can see not everyone was able to present the 2009 Barolo for each of t... Read More
Recently I was pleasantly surprised by a visit to Lodi, California. Long the source of well-priced, consumer friendly wines, not to mention the boost they give many of our favorite national brands, Lodi continues to work mostly off the center stage of wine in the USA. There are many reasons for this of course, from consumer preferences to the gr... Read More
Last year I was lucky to have suffered from an excess of riches, but my travel schedule pushed reporting on many events to the bottom of my pile. I'm only now catching up with all of my notes, so while these notes are delayed, they certainly warrant publication. Chateau Montelena Cabernet Sauvignon is considered one of the blue chip Napa Valley ... Read More
My wife likes Moscato and generally buys Barefoot, but decided to try Turing Leaf Refresh Red Moscato. She took a sip and said it was terrible. I tried it and had to spit it out. It was a step down from Boone's Farm; artificial flavor and soda bubbles, nothing like the label described. In all fairness, maybe we got a bad bottle hence the generou... Read More
Zinfandel, it’s no secret that I’ve carried on a long and intimate relationship with you. There is so much you have to offer. Sometimes you're a bit rough and tumble, edgy, even dangerous, while other times you’re coy or playful. But you’re always there for me, with joyous fruit, classic bramble notes and structure, allowing for early consumptio... Read More

I was going to put this in the Whatcha Drinking Tonight thread. But since there was some Syrah talk going on I thought I'd start a new thread on Cool Climate Syrah.Tonight I'm visiting a wine I haven't had in since May and wanted to see how it is progressing. It comes from high up atop the Yorkville Highlands in the Anderson Valley which is in ... Read More
i like this wine compared to barefoot red moscato. plus it has the advantage of a screw top. i would consider it my favorite at the moment.UPDATE: tried the beringer red moscato. was not impressed. while at kroger, the wine buyer happened to be perusing the aisle. she recommended Cantinadi di Casteggio Sangue di Giuda, and it was a hit! a very ...
