(14.6% alcohol): Saturated ruby. Knockout aromas and flavors of crushed blackberry, violet, bitter chocolate, coffee, orange zest and crushed rock; a cool essence of berries. Extremely primary and juicy in the mouth, showing a texture of liquid silk but also outstanding inner-mouth tension thanks to lively (6.7 grams per liter) acidity. This wonderfully seamless wine finishes with superb slow-building length and great floral lift. Should go on for decades. (ST) 95+?
A cool, inward wine, the 2010 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard is intensely saline and mineral-driven in personality. Sweet floral and spice notes add complexity to the beautifully delineated, energetic fruit. The Hayne brings together tension, power and depth, with serious length and extract. These vines were planted in 1953. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025. (AG)
There’s a smoky edge to the dark chocolate, licorice, blackberry and bacon flavors that make this especially savory. It tastes like jam, but finishes dry, with superb tannins and fine, mouthwatering acidity. It’s one of the best Petite Sirahs out there. This will age for decades, but enjoy it over the next several years for its fruity freshness.
