Joyce 2021 Syrah, Arroyo Seco, Monterey County
This Syrah is a transparent reflection of the terroir in the Arroyo Seco AVA. The Eastern portion where these vines reside is directly exposed to the cool coastal influence of the Monterey Bay. Dense morning fog followed by strong afternoon winds provide one of the longest growing seasons in California. Well drained alluvial soils consisting of Arroyo Seco gravelly loam are the base for the thoughtful farming and honest winemaking practices that allow us to create wines possessing freshness, minerality and complexity.
