Winemaker Notes

This estate-owned and certified organic vineyard was planted by the Turley team using cuttings from the Hayne vineyard. A young head-trained and dry-farmed vineyard in limestone, the wines are dark, smooth, dense, and classic Petite Syrah.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
RP 100
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Flirting with perfection, the 2012 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard and 2012 Petite Syrah Pesenti Vineyard both have off-the-charts richness as well as opaque black/blue colors, enormously concentrated red, blue and black fruits intermixed with camphor and creosote notes. The Pesenti also reveals a chalky minerality that no doubt is from the limestone soils of that region. They can be drunk for their impressive scale, richness, texture and power in their youth, but they will not exhibit much secondary development for at least a decade. They will still be offering provocative and prodigious drinking 30 to 40 years from now.
Range: 96-100
WS 95
Wine Spectator
An intriguing mix of sandalwood, frankincense, candied ginger and espresso flavors, wrapped around a deep, dark core of huckleberry, blackberry and boysenberry, accented by touches of black licorice, clove and dried sage. The tannins are thick and velvety, and the finish goes on forever. Drink now through 2030.
