2021 John Anthony Carneros Gap Syrah

In Stock

Tasting Notes: "This is the second vintage of Syrah from the Carneros Gap Vineyard micro-estate. Celebrated for its unique location in the Los Carneros AVA it also neighbors the home of John Anthony Truchard. The wine’s deep-crimson hue anticipates the aromas of red fruits, black brambleberry, savory spices, and cured meats. Bright acidity balances into a smooth, velvety mouthfeel with flavors of fresh berries and a cool clean earthiness with savory hints of roasted game. Aged 22 months in 57% new French oak barrels. Only 250 cases produced."

Vintage Notes: A dry growing season in 2021 brought lower yields, early ripening, and excellent fruit concentration to Napa Valley. The excellence of the vintage is evident in Los Carneros, where the Syrah crop was marked by intense, small berries that displayed notable structure and excellent flavor concentration.
