All five of Turley’s 2008 Petite Syrahs (they do not spell it 'Sirah') are extraordinary, and I could probably write the same tasting notes for each. My favorites include the Hayne Vineyard and Library Vineyard, followed by the Pesenti Vineyard, which shows more chalky graphite characteristics. They all possess huge aromas of blackberries, blueberries, and ink, massive fruit concentration, enormous body, and a lot less alcohol than the Zinfandels (a character of this varietal). Readers who purchase any of these cuvees should forget them for 10 years, and drink them over the following 25-30 years. They will handsomely repay the investment in patience. (RP) 94-96+
Bright ruby. Port-like black fruits with a nutty oak note on the nose. Supersweet and a bit monolithic; a real black hole of a wine with some dehydrated fruit character and suggestions of dark chocolate and India ink. Finishes with powerful, broad, somewhat unrefined tannins. This wine calls for a steak--or, better year, several more years of cellaring. (ST)
Brimming with bright, juicy raspberry, blackberry and cranberry flavors, supported by a mouthful of tannins and terrifically spicy details of nutmeg, cumin and cedar. (MW)
