Turley Wine Cellars Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard 2002

Member Review by outthere:

Popped and poured, dark purple coated the glass in 1 swirl and stayed there, nose of leather and earth with fruit trying to push through but unsuccessfully. Decanted 1 hour and re-poured. Opened up nicely and the jammy fruit pushed forward. Very pleasing blackberry and cherry flavors with a bit of spice. Just a touch of heat on the backside and the finish was silky smooth but not long. Back in the bottle and into the fridge overnite. Day 2, it's getting better. Poured into the decanter again and the aroma of red fruit filled the kitchen. Tannins more present today with a longer finish. Hope I can wait for tomorrow. This is an awesome Petite.

...Blackberry, cassis, bitter chocolate and espresso on the nose. Wonderfully dense, full and rich on the palate; an essence of cassis and black cherry fruit. Offers superb sweetness and breadth. Finishes very long and sweet, with chewy, ripe tannins... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Petite Sirah wine from California in USA. 2002 Turley Cellars Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard 750ml
