Burrowing Owl Syrah 2009 (British Columbia) Add to ...

  • Rating 90
  • Year 2009
  • Food Pairing Short ribs
  • Price $40.95

My esteemed colleague Konrad Ejbich, a wine commentator for CBC Radio, pushed a glass of this under my nose and quizzed, “What do you taste?” I forget my response, but he was looking for “Baileys,” the Irish cream liqueur. I had to congratulate him. There’s a resemblance, for sure. Up-front caramel and chocolate are underpinned with sweet, chewy berries and a hint of clove. Very fine for short ribs. 14.5-per-cent alcohol. $29.90 in B.C.
