Porcupine Ridge Syrah 2012

Coastal Region, South AfricaOne of the better SA syrah we see here in Canada that mixes spice, smoke and chocolate cherry fruit with meaty, peppery, coffee aromas. The palate is similar with rich peppery cherry/berry jam flavours with a fair bit of oak and a touch of scorched earth and tar among its dry finish. Barbecue flank steak is the match.Tasted: 13 October 2013Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 17.00 specialty listing AB 17.00 private wine shops SK 17.99 MB 17.99 ON 15.00 Vintages YK 19.00 QC 18.00 Producer: BoekenhoutskloofDistributors: Univins and Spirits
