Winemaker Notes

The Library Vineyard is one of the most unique vineyards in California. Planted between 1880 and 1920 directly behind the St. Helena Public Library, the vineyard is very varietally diverse. Primarily Petite Syrah vines mix with a myriad of others, including; Peloursin, Cinsault, Syrah, Mission, Alicante Bouschet, Grand Noir, Carignan, Grenache and Zinfandel. There are also several white grapes such as Muscat Alexandria,

Muscadelle, Burger, and Green Hungarian. They pick them all together to make a wine truly expressive of the vineyard.

It’s always difficult to put into words just how special, multi-faceted, and charming this wine is. Citrus flowers and zest, purple fruits, and smoked peppers on the nose; imagine all the scents of an exotic dinner party under the stars, with food cooked over an open fire, and you’d get close. The palate is firmly medium-bodied with a little added density on the finish, and flavorful, long-lived tannins that carry those aromas and images through to the end. One you’ll want to come back to again and again, and you’ll discover something new every time.

RP 96
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 2016 Petite Syrah Library Vineyard is superb, and one of the high points of this year's Turley portfolio. From a site in downtown Saint Helena, the wine exhibits a deep bouquet of blackberries, plums and rose petals that shares some of the aromatic range found in the Hayne bottling. On the palate, it's full-bodied, rich and chewy, with tangy acids, a deep core and a rich chassis of structuring tannins, concluding with a fragrant finish.

Undoubtedly proving its merit over and over, Napa Valley is a now a leading force in the world of prestigious red wine regions. Though Cabernet Sauvignon dominates Napa Valley, other red varieties certainly thrive here. Important but often overlooked include Merlot and other Bordeaux varieties well-regarded on their own as well as for their blending capacities. Very old vine Zinfandel represents an important historical stronghold for the region and Pinot noir is produced in the cooler southern parts, close to the San Pablo Bay.

Perfectly situated running north to south, the valley acts as a corridor, pulling cool, moist air up from the San Pablo Bay in the evenings during the hot days of the growing season, which leads to even and slow grape ripening. Furthermore the valley claims over 100 soil variations including layers of volcanic, gravel, sand and silt—a combination excellent for world-class red wine production.
