This full-bodied red wine displays notes of black pepper, black cherry and ripe blackberry on the nose - all typical of an Okanagan Syrah. Earthy chocolate, cherry and leather notes complement the rich texture of the palate. This wine is quite powerful and intense due to the winemaking technique used. In this interpretation of South Okanagan syrah the savory flavor characteristics of the grape take precedence over its bright red fruit underpinnings resulting in a complex and elegant wine. The tannins are fine and the finish is quite long.
This wine drinks well now but would reward cellaring of five to up to seven years.
