As compared to the Library and Pesenti Vineyard Petite Syrahs, Hayne is a classic. Here, we find that awesome Petite Syrah funk, tar, gaminess, roasted meat, and spice all wrapped in dark red and blue fruits. The mouth-filling nature of this wine is both soft and gripping at the same time. The complexities are off the charts.
It was difficult to chose a favorite although the 2009 Petite Syrah Rattlesnake Ridge, Hayne Vineyard and Library Vineyard are the three greatest in terms of concentration, depth and potential complexity. As I have said so many times, Petite Sirah is by far the most underrated varietal in California, so it is reassuring to see how many producers continue to make remarkable wines with around 13-14% alcohol as well as 20-40+ years of aging potential.
