Outer quote mark 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. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2013)

Outer quote mark Turley's 2012 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard needs a lot of air to open up. It is also likely to require a considerable amount of time to fully come together in bottle. Today the tannins are imposing, even within the context of this site and wine. Raspberry jam, wild flowers, pomegranate and exotic spices add the final layers of nuance, but it is pretty clear the 2012 is showing just the barest essence of its true potential.
