2016 Marietta "Gibson Block" McDowell Valley Mendocino Syrah (Elsewhere $35+)

SKU #1495573 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Syrah Estate Gibson Block is the star of this range from Marietta. From a dry-farmed site planted in the 1880s, the Gibson Block is powerful, sumptuous and racy to the core. A whole range of complementary varieties give the Gibson Block striking inner perfume and lift to play off the intense dark fruit, while silky tannins add to the wine's racy, inviting personality. (AG) Inner quote mark (5/2019)

92 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Richness, concentration and an intense focus on jammy, berry fruit make this full-bodied wine big and bold. Hints of black pepper and wood smoke slowly emerge on the palate to add some intriguing complexity. (JG) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

K&L Notes

Some of the oldest Rhone plantings in all of California, planted in the 1880s!

A big, rich, dense, brooding Syrah with inky concentration. Aromas and flavors of crushed violets, smoky spices, ripe black fruits and freshly turned earth. This is a bold, mouthcoating wine with lots of saturated fruit and power, but it also has wonderfully lifted aromatics and purity. A stunning expression of these ancient vines.
Top Value! Drink from 2020 to 2030
