Black Hills Estate Winery 2012 Syrah - 91pts

Black Hills Estate Winery 2012 Syrah (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC 

Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $36.90
Alcohol: 13%
Date Tasted: February 9th, 2015

Tasting Notes: This estate-grown Syrah opens with a generous, feminine nose of 
dark cherry, cola, white pepper, French vanilla cream and light floral aromas. The concentrated, dry palate is cooler and more Rhone-y, with pepper spice leading the way followed by layers of cherry, cured meats, oak and minerals. The texture is lean and a tad smoky with mannered, fine tannins and fresh, wild berry acidity. The finish is long and peppery - a fine example of Southern Okanagan Valley Syrah. Drink now-2018.
