Magnum 1.5L Contraband Syrah 2013

Magnum 1.5L Contraband Syrah 2013

A pretty special vintage of our Contraband Series Syrah, a wine we do not currently produce and the winner of a silver medal from the 2016 Syrah du Monde competition in France. It has been aged under optimal cellar conditions and is drinking beautifully right now. We have only a limited number of these silk-screened 1.5 L large format bottles available - although each bottle would make a wonderful gift, it will also vanish surprising quickly over a dinner party of a small group of friends or family...

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.
