Burrowing Owl Estate Winery

VC: This iconic winery of BC boasts a stable of award-winning and critically acclaimed wines. Their Syrah displays plentiful blackberry and pepper aromas with hints of underbrush and cedar. On the palate, it suggests a bit more New World than northern Rhône, but not to excess. This is the appeal of BC Syrah - New World fruit underpinned by Old World structure. My note: truly destined to become a cult classic. This wine is everything I could want: rich dark fruit flavor, subtle texture, and endless finish. Layers of complexity and intrigue. Perfect to pair with a literary thrilled like The Russia House.
