Le Vieux Pin Equinoxe Syrah 2012

Oliver, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaAmple cracked black pepper opens this potent, complex syrah. A tiny tip of co-fermented viognier adds perfumed cold cream fragrance to the mix, but this vintage is dominated by big peppery, roasted meats, flirting tar and structured, bristling tannins. Bacon fat coats the palate before a rage of earthy, dusty tannins take over. The finish lingers with fresh roasted coffee. With grapes from Osoyoos Lake District and North Oliver. Decant now, or cellar for short term.Tasted: 12 August 2016Tasted by: Prices: BC 80.00 winery direct Producer: Le Vieux PinDistributors: Winery Direct (BC), Empson (AB), Lifford (ON), Belanger (QC)
