2019 Gravitas Estate Syrah

93 | 91 pts


This tiny production wine is coming into its own after a bit of time to integrate after bottling. The wine is becoming softer and richer, with dark berry fruits and a touch of very dark chocolate, coconut, and just a bit of bramble and savory notes. While there are tannins, they linger mostly on the finish, while the ripe Horse Heaven Vineyard fruit takes the lead.

"Considering the rich history of the land that supports an excellent vineyard location, coupled with his award-winning past performances, Washington wine enthusiasts should have little reason to doubt him."

Our Journey
Honoring History with a New beginning

Joseph Christy, who acquired and first developed the farm in 1966, was a chemical engineer, one of the original 125 engineers assigned to the Manhattan Project during WWII. He took to agriculture as he had to science, with natural skill, zeal, and a style all his own. Given his experimental, inventive nature, he was game to try new things and wasn’t afraid to take a risk on a fresh idea. That spirit of innovation is the signature ingredient in Joseph Christy wines.

Today, the land is the hero of our wine-growing operation. We started with profound respect for this place, our place – seeking guidance from the soil, the wind, water, and weather that conspire to nurture our fruit from the vine to the bottle.
