WineDiva's Review

Succulent, toasted, sturdy.
This Syrah was made with fruit from the Fool’s Gold Vineyard in Oliver. It was planted over a decade ago by Richard Cleave, the Okanagan’s most renowned viticulturist; this rocky vineyard is western sloping to fully benefit from afternoon sun. It was barrel aged for 24 months in a new French foudre and 15 months in French and American neutral oak barriques.
Dark chocolate and espresso, toasted oak, plums and wildberry aromas are supported by dark earth and spice-rubbed meat. The palate has a similar muscular character with roasted spice and espresso, black fruit and chalky dry tannins. It's a sturdy wine that would benefit from additional time in cellar, or decant before serving.

Pairs great with Gone Crackers Olive Oil & Cracked Pepper
