GRAMERCY CELLARS Syrah 'John Lewis Reserve' 2015

No longer sourcing from Walla Walla Rocks AVA, the 'John Lewis Reserve’ Syrah was entirely sourced from a single block in the Les Collines Vineyard. Speaking to winemaker Greg Harrington several months back he mentioned how he loved the purity of fruit that comes from this vineyard. The 2015 was aged for 19 months in a touch (7%) of new French oak puncheons prior to bottling. The wine itself needs some time to unwind, but eventually begins to show off aromatics of dried sage, wet stone, wild blackberry, mint and a touch of chocolate. The mouthfeel is generous, as racy acidity greets you. This has a very old-world, Northern Rhone feel, with lovely earthy tones on the palate, combining with meat, boysenberry cordial, crushed mint and sage with lighter wet stone character. This beautifully showcases this great vineyard.
