Burrowing Owl Estate Winery 2014 Syrah - 89pts

Burrowing Owl Estate Winery 2014 Syrah (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery and private wine shops
Cost: $30 (including taxes)
Alcohol: 14.5%
Date Tasted: December 3rd, 2016


Tasting Notes: A licorice, black cherry and black pepper driven Syrah from the Black Sage Bench with added notes of charcoal and blackberry - 'all things black' being the key descriptor throughout. Full-bodied and ripe, with RS veering towards off-dry. Wild berry acidity and peppery tannins keeps the sweetness at bay, mostly. Sage, spice and blackberry liqueur linger on the moderate finish. 
Drink now-2019.
