Backyard Vineyards Reserve Syrah 2018

British Columbia, CanadaThe Reserve Syrah is a barrel selection from 3 different parcels in the Southern Okanagan, with 20% whole cluster and 18 months in neutral French oak before bottling unfined and unfiltered. You can taste the forest fires of 2018 here, seeing this big, plush red through a smokey haze. Browning cherry, red currant, and worn leather are pinned by sticky tannins and seasoned with baking spices. This wine is tiring before its time, though it could be suited to cracking into now with a roast beef sandwich or the like.Tasted: 16 October 2022Tasted by: Prices:
