Vanessa Syrah 2014

92 points – “A juicy BC red wine with luscious flavours of black strawberry, anise, violets, smoke and spice. Full-bodied with layers of smooth flavour. Alcohol is high at 14.8%, but the wine can handle it and remains balanced. Polished tannins. Pair with grilled lamb. Syrah food pairings: cassoulet, Beef short ribs with red wine and herbs, Lamb shawarma, Barbecued pork with plum sauce, Moroccan vegetable stew.”
