2019 Arroyo Grande Valley Syrah Magnum
This product is currently sold out.
Our Arroyo Grande Valley Syrah comes from the Rim Rock Vineyards, which is our flagship site here at Piedrasassi. Since 2016, we’ve leased and farmed the vineyard ourselves, meaning that we have full rain over viticultural choices. Here, acidic Chamise (weathered shale) soils dominate the site, which is located just seven miles from the Pacific Ocean. Yields are always relatively low, which in turn, lead to a small amount of concentrated, high-quality fruit.
On the nose, aromas of dark fruits, potpourri, and violets lead to a palate laden with savory flavors of licorice, used leather, cracked black pepper, and hints of smoked meat. Prominent, palate-coating tannins create a rustic and robust finish. We generally recommend cellaring our Rim Rock Syrah for several years prior to opening; should you wish to enjoy it now, we advise serving it slightly cool alongside a nice hunk of protein. In 2019, only 259 cases of Arroyo Grande Valley Syrah were produced.
