A ripe, rich and meaty Burrowing Owl Syrah from the warm 2015 vintage. The nose shows blackberry, dried blueberry, ripe damson plum and smoky, meaty, bacon, coconut, leather and coffee with some dark chocolate and floral violet notes. The palate is rich and full bodied, intense and combines charred meat, paprika spice, black pepper and leather with dried blueberry, blackberry, dried fig and some toasty vanillin oak. Pair this rich wine with a beef and black pepper stew or braised lamb shanks.
