Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright purple. Expansive aromas of ripe blackberry and olive, along with suggestions of mocha and violet. Fleshy and energetic in style, offering sappy dark berry and bitter cherry flavors and a zesty jolt of cracked pepper that adds back-end spiciness. Comes off both lush and lithe, finishing with solid thrust, velvety tannins and a late floral pastille flourish. - Josh Raynolds, Vinous
Vineyard Notes
Named for the two proprietors, Gary Pisoni and Gary Franscioni, Garys’ Vineyard has been named one of “the best new vineyards” –Wine&Spirits. Planted in 1997, the 50-acre vineyard is planted mostly in Pinot Noir, with a small section of Syrah. A marine climate with strong costal winds, and dense morning fog, allow for a long, drawn out growing season. With the combination of weather patterns and Arroyo Seco Sandy Loam soils, the vineyard is truly unique.
Production Notes
Syrah has historically been our last pick of harvest, and in 2014 this was no exception. After a third straight year of drought conditions, patience in choosing a pick date was handsomely rewarded with truly intense flavors. Extended hang times in the Santa Lucia Highlands are aided by morning fog that blankets the Salinas Valley. The fog moderates ripeness, all the while guiding flavors to achieve great depth. - Shannon Gustafson, Winemaker
