26 acres of the 620-acre Laetitia Vineyard are planted to Syrah in one of the coolest growing regions in the state; a mere 4 miles from the ocean. Calcareous soils and a south-facing slope combine to produce grapes that yield supple and concentrated wines.


TASTING NOTES

Blackberry, mulberry, and fennel on the nose, with smoked paprika, mint, cured meats, clove, wood briquettes, capers, and creosote on the palate.  The finish is long and savory, bringing applewood smoked bacon to mind.  Pair with Spaghetti alla puttanesca.


REVIEWS

96 points, Jeb Dunnuck

Another best to date, the 2016 Les Galets (100% Syrah) boasts a huge, gamy, Côte Rôtie-like perfume of bacon fat, spring flowers, cracked peppercorns, and smoked meats. Fermented with 45% whole clusters and aged in 60% new French oak, this full-bodied, concentrated, meaty Syrah has stunning purity of fruit, good acidity, and building tannins. The more sexy, forward style of the 2016 vintage worked wonders with McPrice’s more firm, savory style and this is an undeniably great vintage for this estate.

This estate hit a home run with these latest 2016s, and the charming, more supple style of the vintage worked perfectly with the more savory, classic style preferred by McPrice Myers. These are unquestionably the finest wines I’ve tasted from him, and readers should snatch up these wines.
