2019 John Anthony Reserve Syrah

Tasting Notes:
“A special barrel selection from a micro-block of the Hermitage Clone at Crane Vineyard—one of the first estates John planted nearly 25 years ago. This wine’s rich, inky hue foreshadows the experience to come. Dark brambleberry aromas are interlaced with notes of cured meat, dried  black olive and savory herbs. The mouthfeel is saturated with brooding dark fruits and commanding structure, showing flavors of pomegranate, fig, cracked pepper, loamy earth and smoked game—all converging into an elegantly weighted and persistent finish. A cellar-worthy Syrah that will endure and reward for years to come. Aged for 20 months in 60-percent new French oak barrels, only 100 cases produced.”

Vintage Notes: 
A perfect confluence of conditions brought the Crane Vineyard Syrah to a triumphant conclusion in 2019. Plentiful winter rainfall, a warm summer and a mild harvest season paved the way for a balance of richness and vibrancy, ultimately setting the tone for this resounding Reserve Syrah.
