Rust Wine Co Lazy River Vineyard Syrah 2017

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaLike last year this is the best of what are three exciting syrah releases from Rust. Lazy River Vineyard, in the Similkameen Valley, is home to this stony, intensely black-fruited wine. It reflects its origin in stony, windy, Cawston, where cool overnight temperatures equally match the warm growing days, even in July and August. I love the rich, savoury, almost chewy entry of black cherries, black raspberries, cassis and black pepper. The tannins are dense but sweet, the finish warm but mostly balanced. It lacks a bit of persistence in the finale, but this is a beautiful bottle of syrah and something that speaks to a very bright future.Tasted: 10 April 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 37.00 winery direct Producer: Rust Wine Co.Distributors: Winery Direct
