Le Vieux Pin Equinoxe Syrah 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis Equinoxe confirms the 2013 vintage in my mind as one of the best ever in the deep south Okanagan. The 2.8 tons to the acre fruit is both powerful, yet elegant, and that’s before you add the savoury, white pepper, black cherry, tobacco aromas and perfectly refined tannins. The palate is blueberries, and very floral with savoury streaks, licorice and amazing elegance and length. Only 12 percent new oak is the secret and 88 percent neutral barrels built to express the terroir of this Osoyoos based fruit. Fabulous potential here in what is a wonderful bottle of syrah. It will be even better in five to seven years.Tasted: 12 August 2016Tasted by: Prices: BC 79.99 winery direct Producer: Le Vieux PinCSPC: 390633UPC: 808755012848
