Planted adjacent to the Estate Zinfandel, this Petite Syrah is also certified organic. The area used to be Wappo Indian grounds, and obsidian arrowheads are commonplace in the rocky volcanic soils. The wines are classic Napa Valley Petite Syrah: dark & brooding on the nose, bright and vibrant on the palate.
Less impressive because of high acidity is the 2006 Petite Sirah Turley Estate. I don’t know why this wine comes across as so tart, but it does. Nevertheless, there is beautiful fruit. It is a medium to full-bodied wine, but you’ve got to like acidity to grasp all the pleasures that this wine is likely to offer, and not for another 7-10 years.
