96 Points - Wine Advocate: The 2021 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard comes from vines planted in 1953. Opaque ruby-black in color, this has some rubbery touches on the nose that give way with time to blackcurrant, garrigue, cocoa powder, laurel leaves and charcuterie. The palate is lighter on its feet than the nose leads you to believe, with alluringly floral flavors and soft herbal undertones. It has a surprisingly refined texture, impressive freshness and a very long finish. Offer it 3-5 years in bottle.
95-97 Points - Vinous: The 2021 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard shows why this site is so magical. Seamless on the palate, with tremendous fruit purity, the Hayne dazzles from start to finish. Dark red/purplish fruit, mocha, licorice, new leather and spice all meld together. There are no hard or awkward edges in this young Petite, just tons of pure pedigree. What a wine!
