Mission Hill Terroir Collection Border Vista Syrah 2017

Osoyoos, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Osoyoos's Border Vista vineyard, and its gravelly, loamy sands, this potent and powerful syrah sucks up every bit of its southern Okanagan heat. This spent 14 months in French oak, felt throughout the spiced structure of this big, youthful red. Plush and dense with crushed violets, inky cassis, wild blackberry, and potent peppery spice, tannins are firm and dense, and the finish is potent and warming. This needs some airtime, as well as an appropriately equal protein pairing.Tasted: 16 April 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 50.00 winery and online exclusive Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
