2005 Turley "Library Vineyard" Napa Valley Petite Syrah

SKU #1052921 91-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Petite Syrah Library Vineyard is impeccable. Beautiful blueberry and blackberry fruit infused with charcoal and licorice aromas jump from the glass of this opaque purple-colored effort. Full-bodied and stunningly rich with sweet tannin and good acidity, it should evolve easily for two decades. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2006)

90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Saturated ruby-red color. Reduced black fruit aromas complicated by exotic dried fruits and orange peel, along with a faintly feral quality. Ripe, juicy and concentrated, with considerable power to the blackberry and spice flavors. In a dry style, finishing with granular, palate-coating tannins and firm spine. (ST) Inner quote mark (6/2007)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Effusive and intense, with wild berry, white pepper, smoke, cassis and cigar box notes. Dense structure, but it's rather light on its feet for a Petite, with a refreshing juiciness and green herb notes on the finish. (MW) Inner quote mark (3/2008)

K&L Notes

Turley Wine Cellars makes thirty-four wines, the majority of which are vineyard-designate Zinfandels and Petite Syrahs (and yes, they prefer that spelling to the more common "Petite Sirah"). By focusing on old-vine vineyards in particular, Turley aims to both create and preserve California’s unique winemaking culture. All of the vineyards are either certified organic by California Certified Organic Farmers or somewhere in the process, and they use all natural yeasts in the fermentations.
