Not surprisingly, one of the great Petite Syrahs made in this vintage has again come from the Hayne Vineyard. Turley’s inky/blue/purple-tinged 2005 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard possesses a boatload of tannin as well as a fabulously concentrated attack and mid-palate. This full-bodied monster reveals beautiful purity and intensity as well as a superb attack and richness. Give it 4-5 years of cellaring and drink it over the next 20-25 years. (RP)
Healthy bright ruby. Pure, sexy nose combines blackberry, gunflint and dark chocolate. Plush, silky and seamless on the palate, but with less intensity and chewiness than the extraordinary 2004. But this more polite example of the variety is plenty dense and impeccably balanced. Finishes with sweet, fine-grained tannins and terrific length. The yield of 2.33 tons per acre is actually high in the context of the last dozen vintages. (ST)
