PASXA Syrah, The Rocks District ‘Rockgarden Vineyard’ 2020

Another classic The Rocks style of Syrah from Todd Alexander, and a gorgeous one at that. The 2020 Rockgarden Syrah delivers an inky purple core with a neon pink rim, and boasts notes of black plum, wild macerated blueberry, iodine, iron, smoked meat, crushed black olives, dried flowers, and a smooch of sweet baking spice. Meaty flavors, combined with ground black pepper, hits the front palate hard, but the purity of the black fruit shines forth on the finish. Todd’s wines always display this scintillating graphite quality from The Rocks, compared to that citrusy grapefruit quality that shines forth in his top competitor’s wines from the same area. Unbelievably good and highly recommended. Editors Choice.
