Anthony Gismondi on Wine
Bartier Bros. Syrah Cerqueira Vineyard

Bartier Bros. Syrah Cerqueira Vineyard 2012

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaWhite pepper, black berry, prune, tobacco leaf, cassis jam, coffee, sage with a bit of sweaty saddle leather. Dry, fresh, elegant but slightly lean palate with smoky, black berry, mocha, espresso, light sausage meat, tobacco leaf, celery root and vanilla flavours. Fine flavours but it could use more texture and extract to balance the fresh acidity. Minor tweaking is all that’s required next time out to allow this wine to sing.Tasted: 23 December 2015Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 23.39 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Bartier Bros.Distributors: Stile Brands
