Very good wine, but not very expressive. Again, this is my experience with Syrah from the Okanagan Valley (except for the Equinox Syrah from Le Vieux Pin), they're always better at 2-3 years of age than 6 years+. Deep, structured, but a bit closed. Well balanced, but finish is not that long. A very good quality wine, but not exciting...
Garnet colour with pronounced intensity. On the nose black fruit (Blueberries, black cherries) and some red fruit (Plums), pungent spice (Black pepper, sage, thyme) and sweet spice (vanilla). The Oak is there bit not overpowering. Full bodied, high alcohol with smooth tannins and medium acidity. Incredibly well balanced wine, very well made-reminded me of Northern Rhone Syrah. Looooong finish. still has room for development but is drinking very nicely now.
This wine is in a nice place now. Everyone enjoyed it. Smooth tannins. Not overwhelming. Dark berry fruit, touch peppery, spices. But lighter then many warmer weather syrahs. Almost a cool minty feel to the wine (but no mint) ..... hard to describe. Well balanced. Juicy. Very very nice wine.
