This Proprietary Rhone blend produced from the most exquisite lots of Syrah and Mourvèdre, with a dash of Grenache, showcase the hallmarks of the Annadel Gap Vineyard: windy, cool and layered in fog. The wine shows opulent black cherries, lavender, duck confit and baking spice. Rich, full-bodied and concentrated, yet still light on its feet with balance and brightness on the palette and the signature Annadel Gap lifted acidity and elegance on the finish. 

92+ Points | Wine Advocate

The 2017 GSM Annadel Gap Vineyard is blended of 75%Syrah, 17% Mourvèdre and 8% Grenache aged in 50% new oak. Very deep purple-black colored, it gives up wonderfully cool-climate, savory scents of bacon fat, garrigue, sautéed herbs and chargrill over a cover of black cherries and crushed black berries with hints of violets and truffles. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is chock-full of pepper-laced, crunchy black fruits, framed by rounded tannins, finishing long and earthy. 150 cases produced.

Coming from the Annadel Gap Vineyard in the Sonoma Valley and a blend of 79% Syrah, 14% Mourvedre, and 7% Grenache, the 2017 Twenty-One Annadel Gap Vineyard spent 19 months in 42% new French oak and was bottled unfiltered. It's deeply hued and has a smoky, meaty bouquet of blackberries, black cherries, ground herbs, pepper, and earth. This rich, medium to full-bodied Syrah has good depth of fruit, some chewy tannins, and outstanding length. Give bottles a year or two for the tannins to round out, and I would drink bottles through 2027.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
The Annadel Gap Vineyard is a special place. Our site is characterized by thick morning fog and strong afternoon winds. Alluvial, glacial, and sedimentary influences create a wide array of soil types.Ideal growing conditions, varied soils, and our minimal-impact farming methods yield precise, balanced fruit.
Production Notes
Each clone was hand-harvested individually at night. The fruit was hand-sorted and fermented, separated by clone. Six days cold soak, gentle punch downs 1-3 times daily, average 22 days on skins and gently basket pressed. Gravity fed to French oak barrels (42% new).
