The 2009 Hayne Zin strikes a sophisticated balance between muscle and elegance; it's what younger Zin dreams of being when it grows up. It's difficult to describe this wine as it is a moving target in the glass, with flavors ranging from red to black, floral to spice, mineral to earth. There is wonderful concenration in the mouth and the finish makes for an intriguing and appealing bottle of wine.
"Turley’s flagship offering, along with several Zinfandels from Biale and Carlisle, the 2009 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard is one of the top Zinfandels of the vintage. Super-rich black raspberry, black currant, pepper, crushed rock and floral aromas are followed by a deep, full-bodied, stunningly concentrated Zinfandel with superb purity and close to 16% alcohol. This powerhouse is atypically rich and concentrated for a 2009.
