2019 Gravel Pit Syrah
The Gravel Pit located on the banks of the San Joaquin River, is the location of the premium grapes grown by Frank Saviez, to produce this spectacular Syrah. The gravely soil once used in the production of concrete, now lends itself to the terroir of this exceptional Syrah vineyard. Full bodied, with loads of smoke, berry, chocolate, and black tea aromas, finishes with sweet even tannins. Will develop magnificently over the next 5-10 years. Enjoy with a nice meal of beef, lamb, or any wild game.
JuanFresno? Really?! OK, I must admit, living in Sonoma county I've developed a bit of a snotty attitude. We are "wine country" after all... I've been humbled. A wine this tasty at this price point takes a lot of digging for around these parts. Hmmm... Fresno. I have a whole new appreciation. THANKS!
