The Gibson Block is the heart of the McDowell Yalley AVA. It is planted with some of the oldest Syrah and Grenache in California. This ancient, dry farmed mixed block next to the original Gibson Homestead has been producing grapes for over a hundred years. Reflecting the hidden property from where it is sourced, this Syrah is quiet, obscure and profound.

Wine EnthusiastDeep color and intense, deep fruit flavors along with a good tannic structure mark this full-bodied wine as one to appreciate and age. The texture is fine grained, dry and layered, with concentrated black cherry, smoke, clove and cedar flavors that unfold slowly on the palate and finish. While tempting now, this will be best after 2022. (Cellar Selection)

Wine AdvocateThe Gibson Block is the heart of the McDowell Valley AVA and is planted with some of the oldest Syrah in California. Deep garnet-purple colored, it has intense blackberry and plum preserves notes on the nose with hints of bacon, black pepper and peach blossoms. The powerful, full-bodied palate delivers generous black fruit coulis flavors with plenty of spice layers and a firm, chewy backbone, finishing long with a refreshing lift.
