The 2014 Petite Syrah Library Vineyard emerges from a parcel in the center of town planted with at least 24 known varieties, including white grapes. Perhaps for that reason, the Library is extraordinarily complex. In 2014, there is an extra kick of vibrancy that amps up the flavors and gives the wine much of its precise, finely-sculpted personality. Readers who can find the Library should not hesitate for a second. Today, the wine is literally alive in the glass. (AG)
Noticeably floral with blueberries and blackberries is the 2014 Petite Syrah Library Vineyard, from a site adjacent to the Hayne Vineyard on the back streets of St. Helena. Again, this has civilized tannins that are silky and well-integrated, followed by a wine with an enormous wealth of fruit, lavish concentration, and extravagant texture and richness. It is always hard to peg when these will hit full maturity, but this one has a good 5-10 years of development and should keep for three decades as well. All told there are seven Zinfandels from Napa Valley, ranging from Atlas Peak in the south, to Howell Mountain in mid-valley, to the estate vineyard just north of St. Helena. As one might expect, all of these are remarkable Zinfandels. (RP)
Violet and simmering warm blackberry aromas lead to rich and concentrated, yet graceful, flavors of wild berry, white pepper and licorice. (TF)
