  • Gargantua Syrah, Oregon — 2019 – Wine & Spirits – 92 Points

    "The fruit for this wine is drawn from multiple Oregon sites, the contribution form the Rocks most pronounced, pointing up the scents of olive and molasses, fig jam and smoke. The age on the wine has accorded it a dark savor and smooth texture, velvety soft, with supple tannins and a quiet intensity."

    "Plump and polished, showing multilayered raspberry and guava flavors laced with smoked meat and cracked pepper notes as this builds richness and tension toward refined tannins."
