2010 Turley "Hayne Vineyard" Napa Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1116137 94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark ruby-red. Wonderfully scented, high-pitched aromas of raspberry, licorice, mocha and sweet spices suggest a sweet wine. Silky and suave, with dark berry and spice flavors lifted by a perfumed quality. This beauty is evolving very slowly. The growing season started a bit late and featured a late-August heat spike (during which afternoon temps reached 115 degrees between August 23 and 25, according to Passalacqua). The team cut off the sun-damaged fruit--about 25% of the crop--but the harvest here did not take place until October and this wine clearly benefited in both texture and complexity from the long hang time. (ST) 94+ Inner quote mark (5/2018)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From vines planted in 1902, 2010 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard is pure refinement in the glass. Subtle and gracious, the 2010 caresses the palate with layers of sweet red-hued fruit. The Hayne is an easy wine to underestimate, as its qualities aren’t quite as obvious as those of other wines, but make no mistake about it, this super polished wine has a lot going for it. A finessed, silky finish rounds things out in style. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2025. (AG) Inner quote mark (12/2012)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Few wineries can make Zinfandel with nearly 16% alcohol by volume and get away with it, but Turley can, as evidenced by this gorgeous wine. Even though there is an overripe raisin flavor, this becomes an integral part of the wine's profile. It's dry and balanced, softly complex and layered in textures and flavors. Pair this with almost anything off the grill. Inner quote mark (12/2012)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark An excellent Zin in a difficult vintage. Lacks plushness but remains focused, with bright tannins and acidity. This is jammed with dense boysenberry, rosemary and licorice flavors and aromatic black cherry and cracked pepper aromas. Best from 2014 through 2020. Inner quote mark (4/2013)
