HHHH Painted Rock Es­tate Win­ery 2014 Syrah Okana­gan Val­ley

St. Thomas Times-Journal - - LIFE -

British Co­lum­bia $49.95 (541540) Syrah is a star in the Okana­gan Val­ley and Painted Rock’s ex­pres­sion is con­sis­tently one of the re­gion’s best. Last year, I took this ro­bust and com­plex red to Aus­tralia where it im­pressed wine­mak­ers and som­me­liers with its ripe core of fruit and per­fumed pep­pery char­ac­ter. Many have said it cap­tures the flesh of the best shi­raz from South Aus­tralia and the ex­otic fra­grance of finest syrah from the north­ern Rhône Val­ley. It’s a splurge wor­thy red that’s sub­stan­tial and seam­less.
