Tightrope Winery Syrah 2019

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom Upper Naramata Bench's Paisley Vineyard, this The Syrah is co-fermented with 4% viognier, cold soaked for 5 days prior to natural ferment, and pressing off into French and American oak (50% new, 1 barrel American) for 1 year. The wood is immediately evident, with ample sweet toasted cedar spices leading the cushy palate of blackberry, black cherry jam, and vanilla. Tannins are ample and a bit ragged, while acidity pitches tart. At present, best with some fire grilled fare.Tasted: 08 March 2023Tasted by: Prices:
