2020 Block Six Syrah Purisima Mountain Vineyard

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.

This Block Six is a blockbuster! A ripe vintage, the 2020 Block Six Syrah is loaded with juicy dark fruits and dark chocolate. Earth, pepper, and minerality also feature on the nose and palate. The wine is round, elegant, and intense. Very fine tannins carry these enormous flavors through a persistent finish. The 2020 is a classic vintage of Block Six that reminds us of the exceptional 2014 vintage, with a touch more acidity. The 2020 Block Six will age gracefully for the next 20 years.

    Brought up in 65% new oak, the 2020 Syrah Block Six Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard is more up-front, per­fumed, and exot­ic, with loads of blue­ber­ry and plum fruits sup­port­ed by notions of spring flow­ers, vio­lets, under­brush, and leafy herb notes. Plump, full-bod­ied, round, and exot­ic, this lift­ed, incred­i­bly com­pelling Syrah will evolve for a decade.

    Cel­lar Selec­tion. Clean while rich aro­mas of black cher­ry, elder­ber­ry, pep­per­corn and dark herb shine on the nose of this bot­tling. Grip­py tan­nins wrap around the elder­ber­ry, pur­ple flower and cracked pep­per fla­vors of the palate. Drink now – 2035. —M.K.

    The 2020 Syrah Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard Block Six is a dense, unc­tu­ous wine. The warm year and a few more months in oak yield a wine of sump­tu­ous inten­si­ty that will appeal most to read­ers who enjoy opu­lent Syrahs. Inky dark fruit, choco­late, leather, licorice and cloves all meld togeth­er in this flam­boy­ant Syrah. Har­vest was about a month ear­li­er than in 2021! This is very much a win­ter wine to enjoy with sim­i­lar­ly hearty fare. Drink­ing Win­dow 2024 — 2033.
