This estate bottled BC Syrah is beautifully balanced, rich and mouth-watering with luscious aromas and flavours of black fruit, pepper and some mocha from oak aging on the long finish. Classic! Velvet texture with a satin tickle finish for your senses.

Syrah food pairings: barbecued chicken, beef stew, lamb cutlets, mushroom pasta.

Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Deep ruby with an opaque core, dark berries, black sage, fig on the nose. The palate is absolutely lovely! Plum, black cherry, fig, dark chocolate, baking spice, and sage lead to a long dark chocolate and sweet spice finish. 93 points. Tasted March 2015. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

An enticing deep ruby showing extraction in the slow moving legs great the sipper of this weighty Okanagan VQA Syrah. An abundance of dark fruit, cherry pepper, prune,charred wood on the nose. The palate is smooth with a touch of lingering sweetness on the finish. A very enjoyable wine. Perfect BBQ wine.
Tasted: March 2015
Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

An opaque dark garnet red with thick legs and a dark spicy red fruit nose. The palate shows rich dark red plums and cherries with spice and vanilla. Dry and full-bodied with a dark fruit finish.
A flagship winery and wine for BC and Canada. This full-bodied red wine pairs well with lamb. - Community Wine Reviews
