Turtle Rock Vineyards, G2 Syrah, Willow Creek District, Paso Robles, California, 2020
Overview of the Wine
"We are a small, family owned winery located in Paso Robles. Our winemaking philosophy is simple, you can’t make great wine without great fruit. We source our fruit from some of the finest vineyards in the Templeton Gap area of Paso Robles. Through sustainable farming practices, low yields, and harvesting at optimal ripeness, we are able to make wines with both intensity and balance. We hope these wines reflect the beauty of the wonderful places these grapes are grown as well as the people who nurture them." - Don & Claudia Burns

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
The 2020 G2 Syrah is 91% Syrah, 5% Mataro, and 4% Grenache. Almost all of the Syrah comes from Block 8 of the G2 vineyard, a south facing slope with extremely thin and rocky topsoil. The wine is intensely masculine and offers notes of black fruit, Christmas spices, and chocolate. The acid and tannins are in perfect balance, resulting in a wine with impressive age ability. Aged in 70% new French oak. 266 cases produced. Drink now through 2033.
95 Points - Jeb Dunnuck
The 2020 G2 Vineyard should certainly be outstanding. Based on 91% Syrah, 6% Graciano, and the rest Mourvèdre, it has lots of black fruits, ground pepper, and graphite notes in a masculine, full-bodied, chocolaty style.
