Tightrope Winery Syrah 2019

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis Naramata Bench syrah, co-fermented with viognier (4%), exhibits a bright yet deep crimson colour. It's perfumed, packed with florals, clove, and peppery spices layered with red and black brambleberries. It's everything you would expect from a good syrah. The hallmark black pepper note is more emphasized on the palate, continuing through to the finish. The lighter weight, perhaps lifted by the refreshing acidity and silky tannins, makes it approachable at this stage and enjoyable for immediate consumption.Tasted: 27 January 2023Tasted by: Prices:
