TASTING NOTE: This estate Syrah comes from the Queenston Road Vineyard in St. David's. Classic Niagara Syrah with a nose of meaty/savoury/earthy notes followed by ripe plums, black currants, cassis and a range of barrel spices and savoury accents. It has evident tannic structure and the stuffing to cellar, but still some immediate pleasure with ripe dark fruits, peppery notes and a range of toasted oak spices through a long finish.
