2013 Turley "Hayne Vineyard" Napa Valley Zinfandel

SKU #1229397 93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Not yet in bottle is the 2013 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard. Often a candidate for the top Zinfandel in any vintage (along with the Jackass Hill of Martinelli, a handful of Zinfandels from Carlisle, and more recently Bedrock and Limerick Lane), this wine from a vineyard on the west side of St. Helena tucked under the Mayacamas Mountains has been a staple of Turley’s brilliant winemaking for many, many years. These head-pruned, dry-farmed vines were planted in 1902 and 1903, and the wine seems to be a perfect messenger for them, providing power and elegance, no matter what the vintage seems to offer. No doubt the root systems go down so deep that the vintage differences are often negated by this extraordinary terroir. The 2013 has a dense ruby/plum color and is full-bodied and rich, with brambleberry, blackberry, black cherry fruit and a full-bodied mouthfeel, but (possibly because it is still a barrel sample) not showing the nuances that the bottled 2013s possess. It’s all there, and this wine seems loaded, but I suspect my comments and score are conservative based on what will ultimately turn out in bottle. (RP) 93-95+ Inner quote mark (4/2015)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2013 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard shows just how special this St. Helena site is. Perfumed and aromatically compelling, the 2013 is laced with bright red cherry, flowers and sweet spices, with a hint of blood orange that adds aromatic lift. The Hayne is both deep but also notably weightless. Drink this beautifully balanced, harmonious Zinfandel over the next 15+ years. (AG) 94+ Inner quote mark (10/2015)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Deeply structured, focused and refined, with dark blackberry and pepper aromas and a firm core of acidity and ripe tannins surrounded by intense flavors of wild berry, black licorice and smoky rosemary. (TF) Inner quote mark (3/2016)
