Le Vieux Pin Syrah 2010

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaFrom the cellar. Ample cracked pepper, dense black fruit, thorns and dried thyme on this Oliver syrah, sourced from the Black Sage and Golden Mile Benches. A splash of cofermented viognier amps a delicate violet florally, but this is all about savoury, gravelly, ripe black fruit, now tempered and softened with time. A salted dried plum lingers on the finish. At an ideal time right now, if you've been cellaring, drink now.Tasted: 14 December 2016Tasted by: Prices: BC 45.00 winery direct Producer: Le Vieux PinDistributors: Winery Direct (BC), Empson (AB), Lifford (ON), Belanger (QC)
