WineDiva's Review

Harmonious, stylish, generous. I have a soft spot for Okanagan Syrah, a variety, which continues to impress in both cooler and warmer parts of the valley. Even in the hot 2015 vintage, this wine is stylish. Plump purple fruits are edged with botanicals, mocha and star anise with a mineral seam. It is supple and generous with loads of plush fruit, mocha and spice. It reminds me of one of my favourite northern Rhone appellations, Cornas. It is both inviting and concentrated but mostly, it is harmonious.
Pair: spicy chorizo pizza, smoked gouda and caramelized onion grilled cheese, cheese fondue or game.
