Amulet Red 2021

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaDwight Sick and Penelope and Dylan Roche (Roche Wines) collaborate to make the Amulet Red, a 57/41/2 mix of grenache (Kiln House Vineyard, West Bench Penticton), syrah (Harpretta Vineyard, Naramata Bench) and viognier (Kozier Vineyard, Naramata Bench). Like last year, the palate is alive with juicy red cherries and strawberries dusted with some Okanagan garrigue. It is a refined version of grenache and syrah with more brambleberry notes and pink peppercorns. It’s a Rhone style that should be widely applauded for its texture and fullness with little, if any, heat. The grenache is exceptionally pure this year and strutting its stuff. The winemakers suggest lamb burgers, and anything mushroom would be equally acceptable.Tasted: 13 August 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
