"The 2014 Syrah Grand Klasse (100% Syrah brought up in 75% new French oak) is a firm, focused, yet concentrated effort that has lots of black fruits, smoked oak, and dark chocolate aromas and flavors."

Production notes

Fermented in 100% concrete tanks. Aged in 75% new French oak puncheons for 19 months. Meant to deliver pure, dark and concentrated flavors. Where the Vaucluse is meant to be slightly wilder and showcase some more savory notes this wine is all about primary fruit with notes of smoke, bacon fat and minerals.

Other notes

Inspired by the French Grand Cru wines, Gard “Grand Klasse” is our reserve-level program, aptly named in reflection of our Scandinavian heritage. It represents the top tier of Gård wines, the best of what our estate vineyard has to offer. Award-winning wines produced by winemaker Aryn Morell to showcase the quality of the Lawrence Vineyards estate. To be designated “Grand Klasse,” each wine must meet strict standards of quality and is blended, bottled and aged with the utmost of care to bring you the very best of our grapes and effort in the bottle.

90+ points - Jeb Dunnuck | "These latest Gard Vintners releases are made by Aryn Morell. The 2014 Syrah Grand Klasse (100% Syrah brought up in 75% new French oak) is a firm, focused, yet concentrated effort that has lots of black fruits, smoked oak, and dark chocolate aromas and flavors. With good density, integrated acidity and a focused style, give it a year or so to see if it fleshes out on the palate."

All Gård wines are the product of Lawrence Vineyards designated by the Columbia Valley AVA in Royal City, Washington.

Winemaker Aryn Morell, a Washington native, honed his skills in Napa Valley working with some of the country’s most notable producers, including Silver Oak, Joseph Phelps, Quintessa, Husic, Chimney Rock, Chappellet, Stags Leap and countless others in winemaking and the chemical engineering of wine as part of a consulting company for which he worked.

Aryn joined the Gard team as head winemaker in 2011, and spends considerable time in the winery’s estate vineyard with Josh Lawrence, Gard founder and viticulturist.  With an uncompromising attention to detail, Aryn carefully crafts Gard wines with an eye toward the unique expression of terroir of the estate vineyard, and earns frequent accolades and high acclaim for his wines.

In 2014, Aryn and Gard founders Josh and Lisa Lawrence launched a winemaking facility in Walla Walla, M&L Production, where all the Gård wines are produced, bottled and aged. Aryn also makes wine for Matthews Estate, Tenor, Alleromb and Mullan Road, a Washington project for Cakebread Cellars of California.
