Painted Rock Syrah 2016

Skaha Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaMuch cleaner on the nose in 2016, with a sweet, savoury, peppery fruit character that comes with just a hint of meatiness. The style is attractive, especially with a whack of toasted American oak showing up through the mid-palate. There is 30 percent new oak here, and 20 percent of that is the noisier American oak. The mid-palate is mildly cool with pepper, coffee, black fruits and dense, fine-grained tannins that gently slip away in the finish. A restrained hedonistic version with balance and length. Lamb souvlaki would be a fine match. Good value.Tasted: 21 January 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 35.99 BCLS, private liquor stores, winery direct Producer: Painted Rock Estate WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
