Once again, readers should recognize that the best chance for obtaining a few bottles of these black beauties is to get their names on the winery's mailing list. The 1994s are even more concentrated and impressive than the 1993s. Moreover, the 1995s (produced from even smaller crop yields than normal) also exhibit awesome potential. There is no doubt about it - as a fan of the underrated Petite Syrah, I have never tasted greater Petite Syrahs than the 1994 Aida or 1994 Hayne. Some of the extraordinary Petite Syrah produced by La Jota from the old Park-Muscatine Vineyard on Howell Mountain, and the now-discontinued Ridge Petite Syrahs from the Devil's Hill portion of York Creek Vineyard were previous benchmarks, but Turley Cellars' Petite Syrahs have set a new reference point for this varietal. The thick, opaque, black-colored 1994 Petite Syrah Aida Vineyard possesses 14.1% alcohol. Remarkably, the tannin is barely noticeable because of the enormous, thick layers of concentrated fruit that carries vast quantities of glycerin and fantastic extract. This wine is only an infant, but it will be relatively flattering to drink in 1996. It should last for 20-25+ years. (RP)
