A New Era of John Anthony Syrah—Carneros Gap Vineyard

Napa Valley has gained widespread recognition for its world-class Cabernet Sauvignon, however the Valley’s diverse terroir fosters the growth of several powerful red wine varietals. Those in the know, seek out Syrahs made by John Anthony Vineyards.

The 2020 Carneros Gap Vineyard Syrah was one of the single-vineyard gems in the 2023 Spring Release collection. Grown in a micro-estate vineyard adjacent to the home of John Anthony Truchard. This vineyard site is perched in a distinctive position in the rolling hills of Los Carneros, experiencing the direct influence of the wind and fog from San Pablo Bay. The cool climate allows for an extended growing season and highly concentrated flavor development in the grapes.

The first Carneros Gap Vineyard Syrah vines were planted in 1996, allowing this pristine 5-acre block of vines to mature and flourish. The Syrah crop from this vineyard site is marked by small berries that impart notable structure and concentration yielding bold, opulent wines brimming with intense black fruit flavors and exceptional aging potential. 

This is evident in the inaugural vintage of the 2020 John Anthony Carneros Gap Vineyard Syrah, which presents with deep garnet hues in the glass. The cool-climate aromas of briar fruit and cracked pepper are accentuated by notes of black cherry and graphite. A cellar-worthy vintage that delivers tightly wound tannins, with feathery breadth on the finish. 250 cases produced, only a few cases left. 

The esteemed Carneros Gap Vineyard will also be found in the John Anthony Reserve Syrah program, ushering in a new era for John Anthony Vineyards’ Syrahs.
