97 points                        Very limited. 97 Points Robert Parker:  "The 2016 Zinfandel Hayne Vineyard is spectacular, bursting from the glass with a captivating bouquet in which aromas of rose petals, ripe cherries and wild berries mingle with nuances of spice and coniferous forest floor. Full-bodied, satiny and expansive on the palate, it's multidimensional, succulent and juicy, with amazing weightless intensity, concluding with a long, perfumed finish. To my palate, this wine's singular personality makes it one of the most distinctive produced in California... ...One of California's great wineries, Larry Turley's Turley Wine Cellars continues to play a critical role in safeguarding the Golden State's viticultural heritage, saving old, head-trained and sometimes own-rooted vineyards from destruction. With fully 29 different bottlings, Zinfandel (often complemented by small amounts of other co-planted varieties, such as Carignan and Grenache) is the standard-bearer here, though Turley also does a fantastic job with other varieties, most obviously Petite Syrah. Given how distinctive each of the single-vineyard bottlings is, it's tempting to suggest (though some will no doubt think it heretical) that Zinfandel might be the variety best adapted to expressing "terroir" in California."
