The Long Road Syrah bottle

Last June I sat before a row of wine glasses, blind-tasting a group of Syrah wines. All were expressive and well made (they’d made the cut to the finals of a major national competition), but one had me mesmerized. It was the 2013 vintage of this Syrah, and it received a rare Platinum medal. That excellent wine is long sold out, but the new 2014 vintage is every bit as tasty. The Long Road is a single vineyard at the north end of the Osoyoos Bench. Planted in 1999, the grapes ripen to black- and blue-fruited, meaty perfection. Winemaker Jason Parkes farms sustainably, keeps the yields super-low, and raises the wine in American oak barrels. Give this Syrah a little breathing time (in a decanter or an over-sized glass) to let the cracked black pepper, blueberry fruit, and violet aromas emerge. The fruit-drenched palate is richly textured, with flavours of plum, chocolate, and smoked meat. You’ll want a hip of beef (or at the very least some game sausages) for this muscular, magnificent Syrah.
