2017 Ballard Canyon PMV Block Six Syrah

2017 Purisima Mountain Vineyard Block Six Syrah
Pmv Block Six Syrah


94 points

Block Six was the first section of Purisima Mountain Vineyard to be farmed biodynamically starting in 2002 and is the highest elevation block in the vineyard featuring significant deposits of chalky limestone. These factors contribute to a wine that has consistently been our finest Syrah bottling. Rich aromas of blackberry, pepper, plum and smoke develop into complex, layered flavors of boysenberry, charred meat, crushed rock, and dark chocolate that continue through the long finish. Offering great structure, this wine has the potential to age for 20+ years.

Ground shipping is included on all orders. (Not valid for AK & HI)

    The 2017 Syrah Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard Block Six is per­haps a bit less imme­di­ate than some of the oth­er wines in this range, but it has plen­ty of char­ac­ter. Iron, blood orange and firm tan­nins bring out the more fer­al side of Syrah. Here, too, time in the glass helps great­ly in allow­ing the wine to show off the full breadth of its per­son­al­i­ty. A year or two in bot­tle will do wonders.

    The 2017 Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard Block Six saw a slight­ly longer éle­vage and spent 22 months in bar­rel pri­or to bot­tling. It shows a touch more oak as well as smoky dark fruit, pep­pery herb, vio­let, and iron aro­mas and fla­vors. This ripe, full-bod­ied Syrah has ripe tan­nins, a big, mouth­fill­ing tex­ture, and a great fin­ish. Give bot­tles a year or two and it should keep for a decade.
