Maverick Estate Winery 2013 Syrah (Golden Mile Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from winery here
Production: 200 cases
Date Tasted: January 8th, 2016
Tasting Notes: A masculine, peppercorn-infused, powerful Syrah with an expressive nose of cherry, raspberry and floral aromas with light, sweet cured meat notes rounding out the developing bouquet. The palate is equally bold and masculine with red fruit supported by loads of pepper, oak and metallic, iron-y flavours.
Ready to go now with ample decanting, though, if you can give it time, you will be rewarded by further integration of flavours on the palate. Drink late-2016-2018.
