(recently moved to tank) Dark ruby. Very sexy but youthfully reticent aromas of peppery red fruits. Creamy-sweet but bright, with firm acids giving vinosity and lift to the crunchy red cherry and pepper flavors. A bit disturbed in its current form yet stylish, with a fine-grained texture and firm tannic spine. Should be a knockout.

While potentially outstanding, the soft 2005 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard is not as concentrated as past vintages have been. Although typically a candidate for long term cellaring, I would drink the 2005 over the next 5-6 years. Blackberry, raspberry, and cherry fruit cascade from the glass of this full-bodied, pure, rich, medium to full-bodied Zin.
Offers lots of sweet and tart fruit, ranging from plum to rhubarb, with flavors that are nicely complex and focused. Has lots of savory and licorice notes, and the finish turns a bit rustic.

Wow. I was really impressed with this bottle. I have had other Turleys of this vintage and this one was much better and really nice. Paired with a strip steak and was perfect.
