Poplar Grove Winery 2005 Syrah - 85pts

Poplar Grove 2005 Syrah (Naramata Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Now.
Cost: $39.90 (Direct from winery)
Date Tasted: September 22nd, 2009

Tasting Notes: Medium intensity garnett colour, this 2005 Syrah shows strawberry and candied coffee beans on the nose. At $40 it's a pricey Syrah that has already had 4 years of aging, but it does deliver with a continuation of strawberry and mellowed tannins but overall was a bit of a let down on the palate.With no 2006 vintage, this is the only Syrah that Poplar Grove is offering until the 2007 vintage is ready.
