Larry Turley and his winemakers Tegan Passalacqua and Karl Wicka produce great wines from some of California’s oldest, dry-farmed Zinfandel vineyards. They have managed to persuade the owners of some of California’s finest old vineyards to let them take total control of viticulture; farming organically, reducing yields to extremely low levels and picking very late.

 

Winemaking is gentle and totally unmanipulated, with very gentle extraction. Only natural yeasts are used in fermentation. The wines are matured for 14-16 months in 75% French, 25% American oak barrels (25% new) and bottled unfined and unfiltered.

 

Juvenile is made from young vines that have been replanted in several of Turley’s old vine sites.  The vines that make up Juvenile range in age from about 6-25 years, and include fruit from several of their best vineyards across California, including Hayne, Ueberroth, Pesenti, Salvador, Vineyard 101, Fredericks and Kirschenmann.
