Church and State Syrah

Church and State Syrah 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's Coyote Bowl Syrah is massive, absorbing all of Coyote Bowl Vineyard's southern Okanagan heat, and reflecting it via dried blueberries, ripe blackberries, plum compote and ample spice. Aging in French oak adds structure and hickory / wood spicing, both of which require roasted meat dishes to handle. There's a flush of warmth on the 15.5 degree declared finish that is overwhelming. Too much of too much here.Tasted: 03 August 2019Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 52.00 winery direct Producer: Church & State WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
