Turley Wine Cellars

Turley Wine Cellars was founded in Napa Valley by Larry Turley in 1993. Because Larry has never met an old vine vineyard he didn't like, Turley now makes 34 separate wines from 38 different vineyards, some with vines that date back to the late 1800s. Often weak and decaying, these old vine vineyards require extra care and attention in order to restore them to their former glory. After twenty-five years as an emergency room physician, Larry can now focus his resuscitative skills on the various old vineyards that comprise the wines he loves. All of the vineyards are either certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers or somewhere in the process, and only natural yeasts are used in the fermentations. By focusing on old vine Zinfandels and Petite Syrahs in particular, Turley aims to both create and preserve California's unique winemaking culture.

90  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 90 "Wafting from the glass with aromas of cherries, cedar and dried herbs with a touch of cream and spicy new oak, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Turley Estate Vineyard is medium to full-bodied, satiny, supple and expressive, with a charming, open-knit profile that will deliver pleasure

Turley 'Hayne' Zinfandel 2016
97  Wine Advocate 
Wine Advocate 97 "The 2016 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard is spectacular, bursting from the glass with a captivating bouquet in which aromas of rose petals, ripe cherries and wild berries mingle with nuances of spice and coniferous forest floor. Full-bodied, satiny and expansive on the palate, it's

Turley 'Hayne' Petit Syrah 2016
96  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 96 "The 2016 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard is going to take a number of years to be at its best. Exotically ripe and flamboyant, the 2016 is also a bit rough around the ages. The tannins are remarkably polished for such a young Petite, but the wine still needs time to mesh, which should

Turley 'Bechthold Vineyard' Cinsault 2017
The Wine Planted in 1886, this Cinsault vineyard is the oldest of its kind in the country—perhaps even beyond. The vines are gnarly, head-trained and planted on their own roots. The wine is light-bodied, tart, perfumed, and extremely well balanced.  The Estate Turley Wine Cellars makes

Turley 'Buck Cobb' Zinfandel 2016
93  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 90-93 "The 2016 Zinfandel Buck Cobb Vineyard shows a riper, more overt side of Zinfandel relative to the other wines in this range. Succulent dark cherry, tobacco, cedar, dried herbs and olives add character. This is a decidedly bold, fruit-driven style, yet the wine retains a

Turley 'Dusi' Zinfandel 2016
93  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 90-93 "A classic Paso Robles Zinfandel, the 2016 Dusi Vineyard is bold, powerful and voluptuous. Dark cherry and plum fruit fill out the wine's ample frame effortlessly. Scents of lavender, spice and new leather develop in the glass, adding further character and nuance. Creamy and

Turley 'Rattlesnake' Zinfandel 2016
96  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 93-96 "Another huge, massive Howell Mountain wine, the 2016 Zinfandel Rattlesnake Ridge is simply stunning. In 2016, the Rattlesnake is intensely mineral and savory, with huge tannins and bright, piercing acidity. Vibrant, powerful and explosive from start to finish, the 2016 is simply

Turley 'Estate' Zinfandel 2016
93  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 90-93 "The 2016 Zinfandel Turley Estate is bold, ripe and powerful in this vintage. Hints of cedar, tobacco and dried flowers add character, but the Turley Estate is mostly a wine of volume and textural intensity. Wild cherry, kirsch and new leather develop in the glass later. The

Turley 'Kirschemnamm' Zinfandel 2016
93  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 90-93 "The 2016 Zinfandel Kirschenmann Vineyard is bright and lifted and wonderfully nuanced. Like so many of the 2016s, the Kirschenmann offers lovely mid-palate richness and resonance to play off some of the more floral notes. Silky, gracious and totally inviting, the 2016 has so

Turley 'Dragon' Zinfandel 2016
95  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 92-95 "A rich, explosive wine, the 2016 Zinfandel Dragon Vineyard dazzles from start to finish. Inky blue/purplish fruit, menthol, lavender, licorice and violet infuse this unctuous, powerful Zinfandel. In 2016, the Dragon exudes class in every way. Creamy, silky tannins add to the

Turley 'Juvenile' Zinfandel 2016
90  Wine Spectator 
Wine Spectator 90 "Loaded with pepper and smoky sweet anise flavors. The raspberry flavors take on tannins toward the finish. Best after 2019. 15,000 cases made.—T.F."  Vinous Media 89 "The 2016 Zinfandel Juvenile, Turley's young-vine, entry-level wine, captures the freshness of the vintage in

Turley 'Duarte' Zinfandel 2016
92  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 89-92 "Turley's 2016 Zinfandel Duarte is a rich, deep wine, especially for an appellation in which the wines are often brighter in profile and more lifted in feel. Dark cherry, plum, menthol, licorice and lavender overtones add to the wine's dark, somewhat somber, feel. There is

Turley 'Napa Valley' Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
Certified organic, Napa Valley single vineyard, pure Cabernet Sauvignon--not something that can be said by many! Planted in 1989 on the volcanic and alluvial soils found in northern Napa Valley, this vineyard forms the eastern border of the Turley estate and is framed on two sides by ancient,

Turley 'Hayne' Zinfandel 2015
The Hayne Vineyard is one of our most exceptional sites. Located in an idyllic warm yet breezy spot on the west side of St. Helena, we are honored to have worked with this vineyard and the Hayne family for over twenty years. The head- trained, dry-farmed Zinfandel vines were planted in 1902 and

Turley 'Fredricks' Zinfandel 2015
93  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 90-93 "The 2015 Zinfandel Fredericks Vineyard is one of the more nervous, tightly wound wines in the range, largely a reflection of the site's location at 1,000 feet on the Sonoma site of Mt. Veeder. Iron, savory herbs, chalk, white pepper and dried flowers are some of the signatures.

Turley 'Cedarman' Zinfandel 2015
89  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 88-89 "The 2015 Zinfandel Cedarman, a blend of fruit from Heminway and Dragon is a bit reluctant today and not as expressive as it usually is. In 2015, the Cedarman has less Petite Sirah than normal because of the tiny yields of the vintage. Cedarman is often one of the best of the

Turley 'Old Vine' Zinfandel 2015
90  Vinous Media 
Vinous Media 90 "The 2015 Zinfandel Old Vines is a fabulous introduction to the Turley range. Succulent red cherry, plum, smoke, licorice, tobacco and menthol infuse this fleshy, succulent Zinfandel. All the elements are in the right place. This is an absolutely delicious wine, with plenty to

Turley 'Pesenti' Zinfandel 2015
The Wine This certified organic estate-owned vineyard was planted in the 1920’s on primarily limestone soil. Though the vines are head-trained and dry-farmed, the soil plays the most important role in distinguishing this vineyard on the west side of Paso Robles. The wines have a brightness, with

Turley 'Hayne' Petit Syrah 2015
The Wine Otty Hayne planted the Hayne Petite Syrah in 1953 while he was home from college visiting his grandfather. All head-trained, dry-farmed and organic, this Petite Syrah is one of the most unique wines in California. Powerful and inky in its youth, the wine becomes more feminine and refined
