2007 Burrowing Owl Syrah

This 2007 was short listed with the recent cellar space shortage as there were two still left and five years is a great start for this wine. Burrowing Owl remains a star in the gorgeous Okanagan wine region. This was a wine club offering that was snapped up at $35 a bottle. This will be brief update so on to the tasting notes.

A deep purple greeted us with subtle vanilla notes. The first sip brought out strong tannins that gripped hard. The finish was quicker than expected for such a strong body. Vanilla remains with hints of blackberries and currants. Licorice rears its head towards the end which adds to this already interesting red. A few more years and this should settle down and reward those with the patience.

CWG Subjective Rating is 87 out of 100.
