I do not believe I have ever tasted a more concentrated, essence-like wine than Turley's 1997 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard. Made from 55-year old vines that yielded only 9.8 tons of fruit for five acres, this opaque black-colored wine is the biggest, richest, most concentrated, tannic wine I have ever tasted. It will need at least a decade to shed some of its ferocious tannin, and will undoubtedly last for 40-50 years. Even more remarkable is its purity and overall equilibrium. Despite its Godzilla-like size, this is an astonishingly concentrated, gorgeously made wine. I have never, ever, seen a wine like this! (RP)
Dark purple-ruby. Vibrant, precise aromas of blackberry, licorice and spices. Backward and thoroughly dry on the palate, with a powerful tannic structure making this tough going today. Intriguing minerally suggestion of lead pencil and a deep core of spice add complexity to the berry flavors. Offers outstanding potential but will need time in bottle. (ST)
