Le Vieux Pin Equinoxe Syrah 2006

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaCoffee, saddle leather, vanilla, peppery, tobacco, compost, meaty, dried cherry, dried herb aromas. Round, dry, somewhat austere palate with some tight tannins. Cranberry, peppery, meaty, coffee, resin, rooty, compost, leather, savoury, gamey flavours. Finish is very warm and bit tart with some young oak showing. Needs 2-4 years to round out but lacks fruit and freshness.Tasted: 12 December 2009Tasted by: Anthony Gismondi and Stuart TobePrices: BC 65.00 direct order - Christopher Stewart Producer: Le Vieux PinDistributors: Winery Direct
