Burrowing Owl Vineyards-Syrah 2007

External Review:

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.

Burrowing Owl Estate Winery:
Balance is a time-honored goal in the making of premium wines and working toward balance is a way of life at Burrowing Owl Estate Winery. Founder Jim Wyse is committed to balance, well beyond that of the fine, world-class wines being produced. A kind of Hippocratic oath ("to do no harm") underlies the creative viticultural and enological practices at Burrowing Owl.
