Syrah

Critic's Rating91 pts

Description

This vintage of Syrah is elegant, offering notes of blackberry, blueberry, and black & white pepper on the nose with hints of cocoa and eucalyptus lingering in the background. Soft, supple tannins dominate the palate with rich black fruit carrying through for a mouth-watering finish. This wine will pair well with wild game and hearty red meat dishes. Enjoy now or cellar for up to eight years.

Tasting Notes

This was a featured wine in July's Wine Club package, 2019.

 

Tasting notes written by Tony Aspler.

 

Geographical Indication: VQA Okanagan Valley, BC
Vineyard: Sharp Rock Vineyard and Double Black Vineyard in Oliver, BC
Cases Produced: 3,800

 

Appearance: Dense purple-ruby in colour.
Nose: Spicy, floral, blackberry bouquet with a peppery, herbal note and a suggestion of oak.
Palate: Medium to full-bodied, dry, juicy blackberry and black plum flavours with a black licorice note and lively acidity.
Quality: Outstanding. 89-91 points (dependent upon aging). Give it 2 or 3 years for the elements to come into balance and this will be a stunning wine. For the impatient it’s drinking well now and the mouth-feel will captivate you.

 

Food Pairing: Venison meatballs with red wine plum sauce, ribeye roast with roasted chestnuts and brussels sprouts, smoked sausage jambalaya, sage and cumin pork tenderloin, and roasted tomato and eggplant curry.
