John Anthony Vineyards Syrah Oak Knoll 2006

Member Review by tcrelles:

I found this wine to be dynamic with food with all the characteristics of a really good Syrah, peppery, front and back end fruit with meaty overtones, at a very reasonable price. I bought two bottles, One at the Ivy Hotel San Diego Wine bar (88 wines by the taste, half glass or glass for $27. The second bottle was purchased to take home a a wine sale at Island Prime in San diego for $20 buck. Find this wine and enjoy it.

In 1997 John Anthony Truchard began leasing and managing vineyard property with the idea of one day producing a small quantity of high end wines to share with friends and family. The idea was simple – pick ideal climate and locations for the fruit, choose the best vine stock available, care and tend to each vines needs, work with the best winemaker you can find, and share the end result with those who will most appreciate it. Fortunately his wife Michele shared his passion and together in 2003 they crushed what would become their first vintage of Cabernet and Syrah. The fruit that goes into the wines are sourced only from vineyards leased or managed by John Anthony Truchard. This level of viticultural control is the foundation for the wines produced. Read less
