Burrowing Owl, 2014 Syrah
Origin: Okanagan Valley, B.C., Canada
Cellaring: 5+ years
Producer's Notes: Concentrated and intense from the ripe 2014 vintage this is packed with ripe blackberry, blueberry and baked wild berry fruit with complex notes of charred meat, black pepper, bacon and liquorice. The palate is full bodied and rich with more dark berry flavours, dark chocolate and ripe, firm tannins that should allow ageing for a decade. There is some pepper and paprika on the long finish along with a hint of the dried wild sage typical of the region.
