Turley Hayne Vineyard Napa Petite Sirah 2014 Rated 94-97VM
- Calculated at Checkout
A deep, powerful wine, the 2014 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard is also the most explosive of these Petites. Inky dark fruit, wild flowers, graphite and savory herbs all raced across the palate in a wine endowed with pure energy and concentration. This viscerally thrilling Petite is going to require patience, but it is pretty special, even today. (Antonio Galloni)
Wine Tasting Notes
The Hayne Petite Syrah never fails to deliver. Tightly wound at first, the wine shows classic Petite Syrah fruit and muskiness at first whiff. Blue fruits and a dark, inky dust aroma are also present and will purify with time. This head trained vineyard, planted in 1953, has softer tannins than most Petite Syrahs and is more "noble" overall; the old guard, with old money and the class to back it up. We encourage you to drink this with lamb and other fatty dishes that will help buffer the tannins in its youth.
