Turley Hayne Vineyard Petite Syrah 2020
|Region||California, Napa Valley, St Helena|
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.
The 2020 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard is such an elegant wine, if that can be said about Petite. Silky and suave, as much as Petite can be those things, the 2020impresses with its exquisite balance and total class. Tasted from barrel, it is extremely promising. Rose petal, bright red fruit, blood orange and spice linger.
