Painted Rock Estate Winery 2014 Syrah - 93+pts

Painted Rock Estate Winery 2014 Syrah (Skaha Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Soon to be released. Direct from the winery here
Cost: $34.99 + taxes
Alcohol: 15.1%

Date Tasted: April 27th, 2017

Tasting Notes: The 2014 edition of Painted Rock's Syrah presents stunning intensity on its ripe berry, pepper and floral scented nose and on its brooding, black cherry and endless-spice themed palate. 

Still quite youthful, with grippy, fine tannins and layered with hints of citrus fruit, Mojito mint, vanilla extract and savoury notes. Manages its 15.1% alcohol effortlessly and finishes long, oh so long, with lingering toasted oak and peppercorn flavours. Ready to go now, with 4+ hrs of decanting. Though, best results will come with patience and mid-term cellaring. Drink 2019-2024.
