Turtle Rock G2 Syrah 2018
|Region||California, Central Coast, Willow Creek|
The 2018 G2 Vineyard checks in as a blend of 91% Syrah, 5% Grenache, and the rest Mourvèdre. This stunning wine flirts with perfection and offers a deep purple color as well as a magical bouquet of blue and black fruits, candied violets, new leather, camphor, and a hint of orange blossom. With flawless balance, a deep, opulent texture, building tannins, and a monster of a finish, it's an incredible wine that blends power and elegance perfectly. Don't miss it!
Dark purple. Intensely perfumed aromas of spice-tinged black/blue fruits, potpourri, incense and smoky bacon show excellent clarity and mineral lift. Offers deeply concentrated boysenberry, black currant, fruitcake and violet pastille flavors, along with a sweet vanilla note that emerges as the wine opens up. Finishes firm, sharply focused and extremely long, with slowly mounting tannins, a touch of smokiness and emphatic florality.
