A classic Zinfandel emerges from a vineyard in St. Helena, the 2008 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard. As always, the 2008 is a prodigious effort. Dramatically better than the 2007, 2006, or 2005, it reveals a dense purple color along with an extraordinary bouquet of pure black raspberries, creme de cassis, licorice, roasted herbs, and pepper. Dense, with massive body and flavor concentration yet silky tannin and well-integrated spice, acidity, and alcohol, this wine should drink well for 10-12 years. (RP)
Bright, dark color. High-toned, liqueur-like aromas and flavors of dark berries, dark chocolate and spices. Plush but very tightly wound, even a bit clenched, in a distinctly dry, rather powerful style, complicated by an element of wild herbs. A very ripe, slightly inky Zin with a strong backbone for continued development in bottle. (ST)
