    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: 90-92

    The Wine Advocate

    Saturated ruby. Black fruits, camphor, melted chocolate and espresso on the nose. Dense but youthfully imploded, with a strong spine of acids and tannins keeping the dark fruit and flinty mineral flavors under wraps today. Sweet and chewy but also serious and backward. Finishes ripely tannic and long. A 'mere' 14.8% alcohol, lower than the many zinfandels that preceded it.
