Stag's Hollow Winery 2010 Syrah - 90pts

Stag's Hollow Winery 2010 Syrah (Okanagan Falls) Okanagan Valley - BC

: Direct from the winery here  and VQA stores
Cost: $27.99
Alcohol: 13.8%
Production: 465 cases
Date Tasted: February 27th, 2013

Tasting Notes: One of the more aromatic Syrah produced in the Okanagan with a lovely blend of white pepper, lavender, canned plums and sweet potpourri on the nose; truly a delight to quaff. The delicate and moderately bodied palate follows with integrated tannins and lively red berry acidity. An all-round more subtle approach than the powerhouse 2009 edition; reflective of the cooler temperatures and longer growing season of the 2010 vintage. 8.5% co-fermented Viognier adds depth and boosts its feminine appeal. Ready to open now, yet, will hold nicely in your cellar for many years. Drink 2013-2017.
