(Larry Turley bought this property next to his winery north of St. Helena in 2009 and promptly pulled out the merlot and replanted it to cabernet sauvignon; aged in one-third new oak, vs. 20% for the zinfandels here; tasted from tank a day or two prior to bottling): Good full red. Nice lift to the aromas and flavors of currant and pepper. Sweet, supple and scented, in a gentle, seamless style. An herbal quality contributes to the wine's juicy character and light touch. Finishes seamless and persistent, with noteworthy purity of flavor. "I actually like it," says zin man Turley.
Dark red/black cherries, sweet spices, mint and licorice take shape in Turley's 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon The Label. Veins of bright acidity run through the 2011, giving the wine freshness and liveliness. I would prefer to drink the 2011 over the next few years, while the fruit remains textured and vibrant. (AG)
