Critical Acclaim

"Potentially perfect, the 1999 Petite-Syrah Hayne Vineyard (475 cases, 15.2% alcohol) is a 50-year wine. If it is showing any age after a decade of cellaring, I will be as surprised as its producers. An opaque black/blue color is followed by an extraordinary perfume of blackberry and creme de cassis blended with spices, minerals, and earth. Frightfully tannic, with unreal concentration, texture, and length, this behemoth is one of the most concentrated wines I have ever tasted. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2050+."
97 Points

"Saturated black-ruby to the rim. Unforthcoming but pure aromas of dark berries, violet and dark chocolate. Less sweet than the zinfandel, and more muscular, but there amazingly dense blackberry and licorice flavors and powerful underlying spine. Shows much less oak spice character than the Hayne zin: "This wine always eats the oak early," notes Jordan. Finishes very long, with big, chewy tannins. This is a good degree and a half lower in alcohol than the Hayne zin. Superb petite sirah, but the Rattlesnake bottling may possess even more fruit.
Range: 92-95"

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Being the father, Syrah imparted some of its flavors and characteristics to its offspring, but the two grapes are decisively different. Petite Sirah is mostly found in California, where it gained...
