1993 Turley "Hayne Vineyard" Napa Valley Zinfandel

SKU #330312

95 points and #11 in Wine Spectators Top 100 Wines of 1995: "A truly exciting, beautifully proportioned, rich and vibrant red. Has a delicious core of ripe black cherry, raspberry, anise and plum, finishing with depth and smooth, polished tannins. Drink now through 1999. 200 cases made." (09/95) 95 points Robert Parker: "The 1993 Hayne Vineyard is one of the greatest Zinfandels I have ever tasted. Produced from a tiny, head-pruned vineyard planted in 1910 near the town of St. Helena, it exhibits the most saturated color, as well as a huge, fragrant nose of licorice, black fruits, spicy oak, and pepper. The wine is super-rich, with layers of full-bodied flavors that reveal ripe fruit, well-integrated tannin, and a dry, heady, blockbuster finish. Velvety-textured, massive but not overbearing or heavy, it is an extraordinary Zinfandel that should drink well for 10-15+ years. I profiled the 1993 Aida Vineyard, Hayne Vineyard and Moore Vineyard from cask in issue #96. The wines have now been bottled and most are quickly being purchased by a highly supportive group of Zinfandel fanatics that make up the Turley Cellars' mailing list. The three wines were all bottled without fining or filtration, so all are dense, dark-colored wines. My bottle tastings reflected precisely my preferences from barrel (I liked all the wines but had my favorites)." (06/95)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Zinfandel

- The bid to name Zinfandel California's "State Varietal" may have failed, but this red wine grape, grown extensively in California since the mid-1800s, is grown in few other places in the world. Sadly, much of what's cultivated today is planted where it's too hot and flat. But when planted to well-drained, hillside vineyards that are warm but not too hot, like those in Sonoma County's Dry Creek Valley and Amador County in the Sierra Foothills, Zinfandel can produce wines with plenty of character. High in natural alcohol and tannin, grown carefully it can be rich and complex, with dark fruit berry fruit and peppery spice. The most known example of Zinfandel outside of California is Italy's Primitivo, which can be similar in style, but is often a bit lighter and less alcoholic than West Coast examples.
Country:

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Napa Valley

- America's most famous wine region, which encompasses a varied geographical territory running about 20 miles long from the San Francisco Bay northward to the foot of Mount St. Helena. Napa's great diversity, both in terms of climate and terroir, has led to the creation of a number of smaller AVAs like Stags Leap District, Rutherford, Howell Mountain, Oakville and Mount Veeder, among others. Cabernet and chardonnay still reign supreme, but just about everything under the sun is grown in Napa Valley, in quality levels ranging from $2 jug wine to $500 a bottle California cab.
