Larry's sister, winemaker Helen Turley, made the wines here until 1995. Now the honor goes to Ehren Jordan, who also makes wines for Neyers.

($75) Bright ruby-red. Blackberry, cinnamon and spice aromas convey a powerful impression of vinosity. Then wonderfully bright and energetic in the mouth, with harmonious acidity giving shape and lift to the intense flavors of raspberry, exotic fruits and orange peel. Finishes with superb spicy persistence. Real time-capsule zinfandel.

One of the most famous Zinfandels made is Turley's 2006 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard. Always a big, backstrapping, super-concentrated Zinfandel, the 2006 is much more elegant than usual, without the blockbuster power. It is hardly a wimpish wine at 15.7% natural alcohol, but the overall impression is one of delicacy, finesse, and beautiful black cherry and currant notes intermixed with some lavender, spring flowers, and incense. A pretty wine, and another Zinfandel in this vintage that has a somewhat Pinot Noir sensibility to it.

Big but agile, offering bold black raspberry and smoky cracked pepper aromas, with rich yet well-structured wild berry, roasted sage and licorice flavors that build toward dense but ripe tannins.

Inky in color. Medium rim variation. Medium legs. Blackberry, Raspberry, Alcohol/Hot. Strawberry Jam, Blackberry, Alcohol/Hot. Full bodied. Smooth texture. Medium finish. Despite the abundance of alcohol, this did have a polished, if not refined, finish. Significant fruit on the nose and flavor - very jam-like. Brambly and rustic at the beginning.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
