Backyard Vineyards 2011 Syrah - 88pts

Backyard Vineyards 2011 Syrah (Okanagan Valley) BC

: Direct from winery here and VQA stores
Cost: $21.99
Alcohol: 13.2%
Date Tasted: September 17th, 2013

Tasting Notes: An all-round pleaser, from the masculine, peppery and black cherry-infused nose enhanced with toasted oak notes, through to the well balanced, dry palate offering good continuity of flavours with added ripe plum and spice box notes. Finish is a tad short and the tannins are of the easy-going, drink now variety, but the relaxed style works in its favour. Drink now-2015.
