Turtle Rock G2 Syrah 2020
|Region||California, Central Coast, Willow Creek|
The 2020 Syrah G2 is rock-star juice. Dark, alluring and intense, it smolders up with a blend of crushed blackberries and black cherries accentuated by smoky bacon fat and lavender. It's silky-smooth, almost velvety in feel, with depths of dark red and black fruits that flow across a core of saline minerals and zesty acids. There is so much depth and concentration as the G2 tapers o! incredibly long with edgy tannins and dark chocolate hints that slowly fade. The G2 is a blend of 91% Syrah, 5% Mataro and 4% Grenache, refined in 100% new French oak, 300-liter barrels. Bury it in your cellar for the best results, but there's already so much pleasure to be found here today.
The 2020 G2 Vineyard should certainly be outstanding. Based on 91% Syrah, 6% Graciano, and the rest Mourvèdre, it has lots of black fruits, ground pepper, and graphite notes in a masculine, full-bodied, chocolaty style.
