Turley Petite Syrah Pesenti Vineyard 2012
RP100: Flirting with perfection, 2012 Petite Syrah Pesenti Vineyard and the 2012 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard both have off-the-charts richness as well as opaque black/blue colors, enormously concentrated red, blue and black fruits intermixed with camphor and creosote notes. The Petite Syrah Pesenti Vineyard also reveals a chalky minerality that no doubt is from the limestone soils of that region. The Pesenti can be drunk for its impressive scale, richness, texture and power in its youth, but it will not exhibit much secondary development for at least a decade. This will still be offering provocative and prodigious drinking 30 to 40 years from now.
