Turley “Hayne” Petite Sirah, Napa Valley 2002

Posted on

Opaque purple.

Vinturi – very deep blackberry sauce, hazelnut/earth and a lifted character I can’t quite articulate (mint?).

Seamless. Extremely well-integrated in every respect. Beautiful wine, particularly for Petite Sirah. Ehren knows what he’s doing. Just lacks the complexity/dimension of the world’s best varieties. Or is this infanticide? Good question.

$75 at the winery many years ago.
