    Another addition to the lineup, the 2011 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard is laced with expressive dark fruit, smoke, tar, licorice and cedar. Plush, deep, and beautifully balanced, the 2011 finishes with a gorgeous burst of blue and black fruit, violets, graphite and asphalt buttressed by vibrant minerality. This is going to be a fascinating wine to check on once it is in bottle. Originally planted in 1903, Hayne is one of California's heritage, old-vine sites. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2021.

    (made from vines planted in 1903 and picked on September 30; bottled with 16% alcohol and a pH of 3.4): Inky ruby. Expansive, floral- and spice-accented aromas of candied black and blue fruits, Indian spices and incense, with a hint of smokiness emerging with air. Viscous in texture but shockingly lively, offering intense, vanilla-accented boysenberry and cassis flavors lifted and supported by juicy acidity. Fine-grained tannins come on late and add grip to a long, sweet finish that echoes the floral note.

  • Wine Spectator | Rating: 93

    Dense yet surprisingly light on its feet, with aromas of toasty berry cobbler and mint that lead to ripe flavors balanced by a solid core of acidity and tannins, plus accents of pepper and bay leaf. Hands off for now.
