American West Coast Syrah from an Oregon Pinot Noir winegrower.
100% whole cluster. 0% new oak. 500 case annual production.
Syrah has emerged as a serious, if obscure, wild card in Oregon, and while there are still just a few examples being produced, some of them are among the best the New World has to offer. Gargantua, a new-ish project from Josh Bergstrom, of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir (and Chardonnay) fame, is producing a truly stunning Syrah. – Vinous, September 2020
