2020 Reserve Syrah
The 2020 vintage presented the ideal conditions for growing Syrah, perfect ripeness from a hot summer and long dry fall. This rich, medium-bodied wine has lovely aromas of dark plum, black pepper, black cherry, and blueberry. With soft tannins that will coat your entire palate, one may also detect notes of vanilla and baking spices on the finish. This deep ruby-coloured wine is truly a great example of cooler climate Syrah.
