LCBO Note Status Recommended by Vintage Assessments!
Platinum Medal winner at the 2017 National Wine Awards of Canada. TASTING NOTE: Lavish and engaging syrah from a house based in syrah-central on the Black Sage Bench. They have been making it since at least 2005, and in 2015 they were dealt an extra ripe vintage. This has a beautiful layered nose of florals, pepper, mulberry, anise and ample oak vanillin and smoke. It's full bodied, very silky and refined. Just a touch sweet but gorgeous textures here. The length is excellent with black pepper on the finish. Score - 93 (David Lawrason, winealign.com, July 19, 2017) Price $ 40.95
