96 points "The 2001 Petite Syrah Hayne Vineyard’s black/purple color is accompanied by a compelling bouquet of black fruits, graphite, and white flowers reminiscent of a top-flight Hermitage. Tremendously rich, full-bodied, and viscous, with 13.2% alcohol, sweet tannin, and well-integrated wood, this profound Petite Syrah will be at its finest between 2008-2020+. This is truly magnificent stuff with great purity, length, and intensity." Best 2008-2020

91 points "Dense and concentrated, a bit restrained, with muscular tannins holding tight to the core of earthy blackberry, plum and mineral flavors. The fruit makes one big push at the end, giving it a long, tannic finish. Drink now through 2010. 425 cases made. (JL)" Best 2004-2010
