The 2020 Syrah Bien Nacido Z Block comes from the original hillside block of Syrah at Bien Nacido Vineyard, planted in 1992, and it saw one-third whole clusters as well as 20 months in 60% new French oak. It's slightly more harmonious and layered than the X Block and has terrific blackberry, currant, smoked meat, and chocolaty herb notes in its rounded, medium to full-bodied, gorgeously textured profile. With some smoky, peppery, meaty notes developing with time in the glass, this beauty has beautiful tannins, perfectly integrated acidity, and a great finish. It's another stunning Syrah from this team that will evolve for 15+ years.
