Stag's Hollow Winery 2009 Syrah - 90pts

Stag's Hollow Winery 2009 Syrah (Okanagan Falls) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here and VQA stores
Cost: $27.99
Alcohol: 14.4%
Date Tasted: May 20th, 2011

Tasting Notes: A beast of a wine with concentrated black cherry, pepper, toasted oak and cola bottle cap candy characters on the fragrant nose and dry palate. A blend of co-fermented 92% Syrah and 8% Viognier, produced from fruit from grown in Osoyoos and Penticton, resulting in a bold and adventurous Syrah that is approachable in its youth yet will hold nicely over the next 3-4 years with its integrated tannins and mouth-watering acidity. Pair with peppercorn encrusted BBQ steak. Drink 2011-2015.
