WineDiva's Review

Generous, persistent, elegant.
Stag's Hollow's was established 27 years ago, in the sub-GI of Okanagan Falls. The original owners retired and sold last year. It's comprised of estate sites: Amalia, Stag's Hollow and the Shuttleworth Creek Vineyards. The Renaissance series is the premium label and this Syrah (co-fermented with a splash of Viognier) is entirely from Amalia.
Plums and concord grapes, vanilla and a potpourri of violets and cedar chips are layered with licorice and brown spices. The entry is supple; it's a fleshy wine with generous fruit, espresso, pepper and black chocolate flavours. Elegant, beautifully balanced and persistent.
