The 1997 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard is unquestionably a remarkable wine. However, it will be very backward and potentially long-lived. It was only slightly evolved when I tasted it in September, displaying an opaque saturated, thick-looking purple color, and unevolved but promising notes of black raspberry liqueur intermixed with minerals, spice, and cherry fruit. Massive yet phenomenally rich, admirably pure, and representing the essence of this varietal, this wine requires 12-18 months of bottle age; it should drink well for 10-15 years. An extraordinary Zinfandel, with 17.2% alcohol.
Black-ruby. Bright, spicy, very complex aromas of blackberry, black pepper, iodine and brown spices, plus a lively floral note. Extraordinary fruit offers great sweetness and intensity. Thick yet almost miraculously poised. Finishes with endless, palate-saturating fruit and exhilarating Christmas spices. Always a monumental wine from Turley.
