2013 Turley "Rattlesnake Ridge" Howell Mountain Petite Syrah

SKU #1201713 96 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 Petite Syrah Rattlesnake Ridge shows just how compelling Petite can be up here on Howell Mountain. The bouquet alone is incredibly enticing. Graphite, blueberry jam, cloves, menthol, lavender and liquefied rocks form an incredibly appealing fabric of aromas, flavors and textures. Inky and unctuous, with exceptional textural finesse, the 2013 simply has it all. The fruit remains incredibly primary, so the 2013 is probably best cellared, but it is breathtakingly beautiful, even in its youth. (AG) Inner quote mark (10/2015)

95 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Bright, vivid and extremely aromatic, with lavender, white pepper and cinnamon notes up front, backed by a core of huckleberry, blackberry and blueberry flavors. The fleshy tannins have a rustic appeal, but never get in the way of the details on the long finish, accented by mineral, toasted herb and black tea elements. Drink now through 2030. *Ranked 17 in 2015 Top 100. Highly Recommended* (MW) Inner quote mark (11/2015)
