Turley 2020 Petite Sirah Hayne
"Otty Hayne planted the Hayne Petite Syrah in 1953 while he was home from college visiting his grandfather. All head-trained, dry-farmed and organic, this Petite Syrah vineyard is one of the most exceptional sites in California. The wine is powerful and inky in its youth, and becomes more elegant and refined with age. Likely to outlive us all.
One of the finest wines we make, this organic, old-vine Petite Syrah has serious pedigree. An abundantly fragrant nose, including bouquet garni, sage, bay leaf, India ink, nutmeg, meat marinade, rose petal, and lavender. Savory and satiating on the palate, potently flavored with plenty of acidity and downright delicious. Will reward patience; lay it down for as long as you can stand it, or decant for a few hours ahead of time then serve at 60°-65°F."
