Church & State Wines Syrah 2005

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaTasted several times this single vineyard syrah from the south Okanagan is coming into its own. The entry is soft and ripe, the tannins light and the flavours a big mix of peppery, vanilla, chocolate pudding, black cherry and licorice root. Fairly oaky but it appears to be soaking into the wine at this point. I'm a bit surprised to see this in government stores but there you have it. Grab it while you can.Tasted: 01 August 2007Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices:
