Syrah 2014

A staple of the South Okanagan vineyard scene, this peppery, fruit driven, elegant wine is well worth trying......

This is a dry, medium bodied red wine.  On the nose and palate it shows black cherry and floral notes mixed with sweet cedar, all supported by bright acid and tannin. The wine does show some of the black pepper character of Okanagan Syrah but less so than in cooler vintages. 

In 2014 we returned to using small amounts of French oak. In the past, we exclusively used new Hungarian oak barrels which provided a nice complement to the black pepper notes in Syrah. Hungarian oak provides background aromas like clove and allspice but fewer of the ‘higher’ notes of cinnamon or sweet wood. We decided that since the 2014 vintage had a riper profile, it would benefit from some new French oak.

Our Syrah 2014 drinks beautifully at present, but would age well over the next 4 to 7 years under proper cellar conditions.
