Vanessa Vineyard Syrah 2013

91 points – “This is from a maturing vineyard in the Similkameen that made its name in a single vineyard wine by Howard Soon of Sandhill. This year however Vanessa Vineyards has opened its doors. This has a big ripe, complex nose of blueberry/blackberry pie with salt and pepper, tar, chocolate and mint complexity. Some licorice as well. It’s full bodied, fairly dense and hot with a savoury, stony finish. Quite tannic. Excellent length. This is built for ageing.”
