Peller Estates Private Reserve Syrah, Okanagan Valley BC, 2009
Readers rated this wine:
The warm 2009 vintage shows in this potent Syrah, harvested from both the Similkameen and Okanagan Valleys.
Gobs of spicy black fruit, bramble berries, rich espresso mocha and sweet brown spices. The palate is supple but fresh with concentrated dark fruit, molasses and toasted spice woven around a savoury core of smoked meat and peppery flavours.
Great Syrah typicity and it hides the nearly 15% alcohol well.
Recommended pairings: aged cheddar or aged goats cheese or braised meats
This wine will be poured in my annual Diva(s) at the Met event by winemaker Stephanie Leinemann during Playhouse Wine Festival, Feb.29/2012
