Grape: Petite Syrah
Tasting Notes: Black cherry, Olive, Spice
Turley Wine Cellars was founded in 1993 by Larry Turley. By focusing on old vine vineyards in particular, Turley aims to both create and preserve California’s unique winemaking culture. All of Turley’s vineyards are either certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers or somewhere in the process.
2016 is the inaugural vintage of Turley’s newest wine, the Napa Valley Petite Syrah. This wine is a combination of fruit from three certified organic Napa Valley vineyards each of which adds a unique element (structure, complexity, tannin or flavor) to the final product. It's young, full bodies, concentrated, and vibrant with big tannins. On the palate it offers abundent black cherry, dark currants, black olives huckleberry, pepper and clove flavors. There's good length on the finish. Pair this with a hearty meat dish.
