Fully mature and not benefitting from it... Brown forest floor notes - rotting leaves, brown sugar, some grip left with a tiny bit of sediment - Plastic cork!!! Burrowing Owl better stop resting on its laurels (they have since 2003 in my opinion) and realize there's a lot better wines out there at 1/2 the price. It's a shame as at one time they were one of the top wineries in BC. All of their red vintages from 2003 onwards (I was a serious collector of their wines since the late 1990s) I now use for pasta sauces... Stopped buying their wines in 2006
Showing obvious signs of senescence, this somewhat blowzy confit of overripe cassis, sausage, iodine is well past it - glad it's my last bottle. I cannot take seriously *any* wine that uses a plastic cork, never mind at this price.
