Painted Rock Syrah Cabernet Sauvignon 2020

Skaha Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is a study in pepper and dried herbs with just enough spice to heighten the flavours. The mid-palate is youthful with some reductive notes that require decanting or, at the very least, constant swirling, but it should pass with time. The finish is a mix of smoky oak and drying tannins leaving it a touch rustic in 2020. It needs some time in the bottle or serve it now alongside a rich piece of grilled lamb, or cellar through 2025. The 2020 mix is 76% syrah with 24% cabernet sauvignon, and is aged 18 months in 30 percent new French oak.Tasted: 04 November 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
