    Critical Acclaim:

    All five of Turley’s 2008 Petite Syrahs (they do not spell it “Sirah”) are extraordinary, and I could probably write the same tasting notes for each. My favorites include the Hayne Vineyard and Library Vineyard, followed by the Pesenti Vineyard, which shows more chalky graphite characteristics. They all possess huge aromas of blackberries, blueberries, and ink, massive fruit concentration, enormous body, and a lot less alcohol than the Zinfandels (a character of this varietal). Readers who purchase any of these cuvees should forget them for 10 years, and drink them over the following 25-30 years. They will handsomely repay the investment in patience. Range 90-93.

    The Wine Advocate

    Bright medium ruby. Captivating nose melds cherry pit, black raspberry, black tea and Christmas spices. Sweet and silky but impeccably focused, with a lovely floral scent lifting the slightly exotic dark berry flavors. This boasts terrific fruit and finishes with ripe tannins and terrific persistence. The two new releases from the Hayne Vineyard do not appear to be up to normal standards, but the two examples from the Turley Estate Vineyard are singing today.
