Tasting Notes

If you feel like you are in a Cadbury Fruit & Nut candy bar, then you're not alone! Uber ripe flavours of plum, cassis and clove spice dominate on the nose while toasty oak notes, combined with creamy Valrhona milk chocolate takeover on the palate. This decadent, fullbodied, complex Syrah is a good one to lay down for extended aging or a great candidate for boisterous decanting.

Technical Notes

2016 was a dream vintage where all red varieties in all sites ripened well. We have three distinct blocks of Syrah at Queenston Road Vineyard (QRV), all of which produced remarkably good wine that year. We vinified each block separately and underwent our regular rigorous selection process of parceling out Broken and UNBroken Press wines. Surprise! Surprise! All of which ended up coming entirely from the west block (as usual). Our 2016 iteration of Iconoclast Syrah is a single-vineyard selected blend of wines from the east, centre and west Syrah blocks at QRV. Yeah! It's technically the "leftovers", but don't feel slighted. When you taste this beauty we think you'll agree that it's delish. Probably"¦ the best non-reserve Syrah we"™ve ever made. But what do we know!?!
