(2013 Vintage) The Hayne Vineyard is one of our most exceptional sites. Located in an idyllic warm yet breezy spot on the west side of St. Helena, we are honored to have worked with this vineyard and the Hayne family for over twenty years. The head- trained, dry-farmed Zinfandel vines were planted in 1902 and 1903, and they produce wines of power and elegance in every vintage. Year after year, this wine serves as the archetype for Zinfandel and Napa Valley
International Wine CellarDark 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.
