Liquid velvet for the taste buds. This wine is all about texture. Mouth-filling with aromas of fleshy black plums and dark spice. The Syrah grapes for this robust BC red wine are grown in the winery's Saddle Ridge Vineyard. Pair with grilled lamb.

Syrah food pairings: lamb, pepper steak, and lightly spiced Asian inspired dishes. For pure decadence, dark chocolate with sea salt..

Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Absolutely alluring! Intense black cherry, black plum, spice, tobacco leaf and cedar notes linger on and on. The palate is smooth and rich with ripe developed tannins and moderate acidity. Enjoy with braised beef. Tasted Mar 2017 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A delicious concentrated purple Okanagan Valley gem of a Syrah. Declared 14.3%. Medium plus body, dense and richly concentrated. Black plum, blackberry, tomato leaf, and a hint of peppercorn. Medium finish with persistence of berry and peppercorn. Fantastic Syrah vinified with Fruit from Penticton BC on the Naramata bench. Enjoy paired with a filet mignon drizzled with peppercorn sauce. Tasted March 2017. 90 Points
Fermented and aged in American oak. 75% of which was new, with the remainder 2nd and 3rd year barrels. 16 months in barrel

Reflective of the warm vintage that was 2014, this wine starts off with aromatics of boysenberry, clove and touch of olive and black pepper. The pallet delivers a spicy, medium bodied wine of fine grained tannins and well framed acidity with flavours of dark berry, mint and the sublte pepper flavours and savoury edges but still in a fruit forward style.
Drink now, or allow to age for upwards of six plus years.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
