Laughing Stock Vineyards Syrah +11/10 2016

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom their Perfect Hedge vineyard in southern Osoyoos, this stylish wine blends 95% Syrah with 5% Viognier, to classic affect. This gives the nose a floral lift and softens the warming pepper note ever so slightly before a sweet salami, violet, plush blackberry core. Tannins are sticky, and the fruit potent, sticking the lingering finish with traces of pipe tobacco. Nearly one quarter of this wine was fermented in French oak, and all of it was aged in French oak (36 percent new) for 16 months. Big wine, matched by big beef dishes now.Tasted: 10 September 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 36.00 winery direct Producer: Laughing Stock VineyardsDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
