Quails' Gate Syrah The Boswell 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Boswell Syrah is a Westbank estate grown syrah that is part of the winery's prestigious Anniversary Series, honouring its pioneering Okanagan ancestors. In 2017 the wine is singing freshness, reflecting its northern position, cool climate, and ancient volcanic soils. It is the elegance and sleek styling that gives it its gravitas. Look for intense black and blue fruits with fresh cracked black pepper and a touch of salami dusted with a savoury, spicy mix of dried desert herbs. The tannins are youthful and dense, but with a sweetness and roundness that lets them slip by almost unnoticed. Impressive and the best yet from this Westbank producer.Tasted: 22 April 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 69.99 winery direct AB 69.99 private wine shops Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
