Quails' Gate Syrah The Boswell 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOne of Quails' Gate's prestigious Anniversary Series in honour of the family's pioneering Okanagan ancestors, the 2015 edition of The Boswell Syrah amounted to 24 barrels total. This Westbank estate grown syrah spent 18 months in French oak, required to support the ripe intensity of the fruit. Dense black cherry is perfumed with herbs, violets, wild anise, thorns, fried sage and alluring lavender potpourri to a medicinal cassis and very bitter black coffee finish. Tannins are bracketed with grippy, persistently fine wood spicing, afforded from the barrel. This is very much in youth, and will benefit from time in a decanter and pairing with Salt Spring lamb now.Tasted: 19 November 2017Tasted by: Prices: BC 50.00 winery direct Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
