Turley 2017 Petite Syrah Napa Valley

Description

"A new wine to the Turley family, from a beloved but oft overlooked variety: Petite Syrah! This wine is a combination of fruit from three certified organic Napa Valley vineyards: Rattlesnake Ridge on Howell Mountain, which lends excellent structure and tannin; our Estate Petite Syrah in St. Helena, with its classic garrigue and dark fruits; and Casa Nuestra, adjacent to our St. Helena Estate, which adds the dark florals and older vine complexity. These prestigious vineyards together make for a wine truly expressive of both Napa Valley and the excellent, elegant, truly Californian (though rarely represented) grape we hold dear, Petite Syrah."

Antonio Galloni (89-92) Points: "One of the hidden gems here and a relatively recent addition to the range, the 2017 Petite Syrah (Napa Valley) is powerful and distinctive. Sweet red cherry, plum, iron, grilled herbs, chocolate and leather all come together in the glass. Today, the 2017 feels a bit heavy. Hopefully aging will take care of at least some of that. The Napa Valley Petite is a blend of fruit from Casa Nuestra, the Turley Estate and Rattlesnake."
