2013 Le P'tit Paysan Monterey County Petite Sirah

From the winery: "Picked at atypically low sugars for the variety. Fermented in small lots with some stem inclusion and some native yeasts. Aged on lees in less than 10% new oak. From a limestone and shale rich block on Pierce Ranch in southern Monterey County. We pick Petite Sirah from two blocks in the Y-Ranch section of the Pierce Vineyard. Block 1 is a west facing rocky hillside littered with chunks of white limestone, which at times are as large as two fists. "

2013 Girard Napa Valley Petite Sirah

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A successful wine from Girard, their 2013 Petite Sirah has good, deep fruit, cleanliness and purity, and some wood and spice in a medium-bodied, pleasant style. Drink it over the next 5 years. (RP)" (12/2015) Wine Spectator: "There's a touch of savory here, with a beefy teriyaki note to complement the core of rustic, juicy blackberry and dark plum flavors. Shows plenty of spice and cedar accents on the firm finish. Drink now through 2025. (MW)" (12/2015)

2015 Carlisle "Palisades Vineyard" Napa Valley Petite Sirah

91-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Another monster in the making is the 2015 Petite Sirah Palisades Vineyard (15.7% alcohol, 580 cases). This is no ordinary Petite Sirah, but then, few are. Nearly black as a moonless night, the wine’s aromatics soar from the glass, offering up floral notes intermixed with blackberry, incense, blueberry liqueur, graphite and licorice. Huge intensity of flavor, sweet but noticeable tannins, low acidity, but fabulous richness, and a broad, almost endless finish characterize this Petite Sirah that should age well for 30-50 or more years.

Made from 55-year old vines that yielded only 9.8 tons of fruit for five acres, this opaque black-colored wine is the biggest, richest, most concentrated, tannic wine I have ever tasted.

It is still in an infantile state, but my notes suggested I was tasting a run away, high speed train. An opaque purple color, massive richness, and huge thickness and extract should produce a phenomenal bottle of wine in 15-20 years.

It is a massive, almost uncivilized, wildly out of control Petite Syrah that will require 10-15 years of cellaring, and last for 30 or more. I have been conservative in my judgment because the tannin nearly melted the fillings in my teeth, but this is an amazing, astonishing wine that will be fascinating to follow over the next 3-4 decades.

2003 Turley "Rattlesnake Ridge" Howell Mountain Petite Sirah

92-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The hardest wine in this portfolio to figure out was the 2003 Petite Syrah Rattlesnake Ridge. It is a monster, but its tannins are so severe and the wine so painfully concentrated and extracted as to be so totally unevolved. It tasted as if it were only several months old. There are 175 cases (14.7% alcohol) of this blockbuster. It will undoubtedly settle down, with the tannins becoming more integrated, but certainly it is a huge wine that needs to be forgotten for at least a decade. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it drink well 30-50 years from now. ...Read More »

2003 Turley "Library Vineyard" Napa Valley Petite Syrah

92-94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2003 Petite Syrah Library Vineyard exhibits a deep purple color and a nose of creosote, scorched earth, blue and black fruits, minerals, and hints of pepper and white flowers. A rich wine from a vineyard adjacent to the library in St. Helena, it should be at its finest between 2008-2025. (RP)" (2/2005) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Saturated ruby. Superripe aromas of black cherry and fruity Tellicherry pepper, with exotic suggestions of apricot and white flowers; high-toned and slightly port-like. Then sweet, exotic and penetrating. Finishes with big, ripe tannins." (6/2005) K&L Notes: Turley ... Read More »

1999 Turley "Rattlesnake Acres" Napa Valley Petite Syrah

93-96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright, deep, opaque ruby. Subtle, brooding aromas of blackberry, violet and pepper. Extraordinarily concentrated, superripe, essence-of-berry flavors border on painful today. This has really uncanny intensity. The explosive fruit blows past the substantial tannins on the finish. Wow! (ST)" (6/2001) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Amazing is the 1999 Petite-Syrah Rattlesnake Acres (225 cases, 14.8% alcohol). With an appearance reminiscent of vintage Port, it offers notes of blackberries, smoke, and minerals. This blockbuster, gargantuan wine boasts awesome concentration, exquisite purity ...Read More »

1993 Turley "Hayne" Napa Valley Petite Syrah

91 points Robert Parker: "Petite Sirah lovers will go ballistic when they taste the two 1993 offerings from Turley Cellars. The 1993 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard (from a vineyard planted in 1950) reveals a dense purple color, full body, an earth, pepper, and black fruit-scented nose, concentrated flavors, and a muscular, tannic finish. These are extraordinary wines!" (06/95) 91 points Wine Spectator: "Big, ripe, dark and richly flavored, this has a tight core of juicy plum, currant and black cherry, and finishes with a mouthful of chewy tannins and a spi...

2004 Turley "Estate" Napa Valley Petite Syrah

93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The Petite Syrah reveals a black/purple color as well as notes of graphite, smoke, blackberries, blueberries, creme de cassis, a liqueur of mineral-like intensity, and huge tannin and concentration. The 2004 Petite Syrah Turley Estate is on the fastest evolutionary track. This is a prodigious wine that should be purchased only by those with cold cellars and good DNA for longevity as it will all age for 40-50 years. (RP)" (12/2005) Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Aromas of redcurrant, roast coffee and dark chocolate. Fat, low-toned and chunky; impressive more for its texture than for its ...Read More »

1996 Turley "Aida" Napa Valley Petite Syrah

92-93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Turley continues to offer two of the blackest, densest, richest Petite Syrahs ever produced in California. Alongside its siblings, the 1996 Petite Syrah Aida Vineyard looks like a wimp with only 13.8% alcohol, but what concentration and intensity this wine offers. From a 4.5-acre vineyard, only 3 tons of fruit were harvested in 1996. The result is an opaque purple-colored wine with a dense, mineral, earthy, peppery, blackberry-scented nose, huge, ripe, thick flavors, gobs of glycerin and fruit, and a long, moderately tannic finish. My guess is that this ...Read More »
