Food Pairings for Burrowing Owl Vineyards-Syrah
External Reviews for Burrowing Owl Vineyards-Syrah
This is the fifth vintage of Syrah released by Burrowing Owl, one of the first of the wineries on the south Okanagan’s Black Sage Bench to plant this vine. Now, most vineyards in the region include some Syrah. While there is some hesitation about growing a late ripening variety, the winemaking results invariably are satisfying. Burrowing Owl, for one, has made one solid Syrah after another.This big, dark wine begins with aromas of spiced plums. The wine presents a rich palate of flavours, including plum, black cherries, pepper and cola, with overtones of leather and minerals and a finish of black cherries and liquorice. The abundant fruit rests on a firm texture of ripe tannins. The wine will cellar well for several years but it also is drinking well now. 89 points.
