Lots of fruit, slowly turning to dried fruit and charcuterie. Big bodied wine give it a couple more years. I bought 4 bottles to see how it will evolve.

2011 Painted Rock #Syrah, #Okanagan, BC #Canada. Violet and grapefruit aromas. Dried cherry, plum mixed with desert herb, leather and vanilla spice. Wow this is a fun wine that I want to try again in 5 years. #nomnom #sommelier #wine

Big and elegant, subtle and sledgehammer. Contradictory in the most delightful ways. Pre-release.

After trying the Painted Rock Cab Franc, had to try another wine from the vineyard and naturally gravitated to the Syrah. Smells musky, herbaceous with mega spice. Taste; right off the bat, heavy, dominant peppery spice with mild cloves and black liquorice. At the beginning there is some dark cherry and stewed plums that is short lived. The spice dominates all phases of the wine. Finish ends somewhat abruptly. Required about 30-45 min to fully develop. I still prefer the Laughing Stock Syrah but this is right up there. Overall, great wine!

Big peppery, ripe plum and dark berries. A bit of tannins but very enjoyable. I visited the winery a few years ago and they told me how bears paid them frequent visits and ate tons (literally) of their grapes. Great view of Skaha lake.
