The 2010 Estate vineyard is classic Napa Valley Petite Syrah. The wine is concentrated and intense without being overbearing, with abundant yet refined tannins. Notes of Indian ink, soot, chalk, dark fruits and even citrus rind are all packed into this complex and satisfying wine.
"The 2010 Petite Syrah Turley Estate is utterly convincing from the very first taste. Waves of inky black fruit, tar, licorice, menthol and violets hit the palate as the wine shows off its massive pedigree. Juicy, expressive and beautifully perfumed, the Estate brings together all of the best elements of the Turley style. A huge, powerful finish rounds things out. This is a great showing.
Vinous / Antonio Galloni
"Saturated ruby. Ethereal aromas and flavors of stone fruits, orange zest and flowers; this would be interesting to serve in a black glass. Smooth and lush in the mouth, but with serious acidity giving lift to the middle palate. Wonderfully aromatic if rather idiosyncratic petite sirah with distinctly elegant tannins for the variety. Not the last word in density but very long on the aftertaste."
