95 Points

The very warm weather during the 2020 season brought a ripe vintage of the Clone 1. Planted in some deep clay and limestone, which helped offset the heat and drought, this block was one of the highlights of the vintage, delivering an outstanding Syrah Clone 1. Smoke, game, blackberry, plum, and chocolate highlight the aromas and flavors of this vintage, showing nice lift (even in this hot vintage), round, smooth texture, and a long finish with very fine tannins. Drink this vintage now and over the next 15 years.

    The 2019 Syrah Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard Clone #1 is a super-ele­gant wine that bal­ances Bal­lard Canyon rich­ness with a good deal of finesse. Red/​blueish fruit, mint, laven­der and spice are all pushed for­ward. The 2019 was done entire­ly with destemmed fruit, yet it has ter­rif­ic bright­ness and ener­gy. Time in the glass brings out the aro­mat­ics and the red­der tonal­i­ties of fruit.

    Com­ing all from a sin­gle clone of Syrah plant­ed in Bal­lard Canyon, the 2019 Syrah Clone 1 Purisi­ma Moun­tain Vine­yard sports a sat­u­rat­ed pur­ple hue as well as a rich, pow­er­ful bou­quet of black­ber­ries, blue­ber­ries, ground pep­per, and vio­lets. It’s not the most aro­mat­ic Syrah out there, but this pup­py pops on the palate, offer­ing full-bod­ied rich­ness, a live­ly, juicy, ele­gant mouth­feel, loads of mid-palate den­si­ty, and a great fin­ish. I expect it will devel­op more com­plex­i­ty with a year or three of bot­tle age and should keep for a sol­id decade. Matu­ri­ty 2022 – 2034.
