Serendipity Winery 2010 Devil's Advocate (Naramata Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $25
Alcohol: 13.8%
Date Tasted: August 28th, 2014
Production: 200 cases

Tasting Notes: The blend of Bordeaux varieties and Syrah (specific blend not provided) opens with a beautiful balance of juicy red fruit and sweet spice aromas on the generous nose. The dry, peppery palate follows with pronounced spice elements and added savoury flavours from the oak treatment, pushing the fruit profile of black cherry, raspberry and plum to the background. Tannins have mellowed at 4 years of age, yet, still frame the palate nicely. However, the finish has begun to fade, so, if you have any in your cellar look to open them over the next 1-2 years. 
Drink now-2015.
