Le Vieux Pin Equinoxe Syrah 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaEquinoxe is a highly structural, savoury, powerful red, but one with an emphasis on grace. From the Black Sage Bench and Osoyoos East Bench, and from teenaged vines (9-14 years old). This leads with savoury roasted meats, followed with generous purple and blue fruit, lavender lined, still holding freshness and brightness even considering the very hot year. Tannins are ample but fine, and the fruit is abundant and earth-kissed. Structural blended with generosity, this is a lovely show of challenging vintage.Tasted: 20 October 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 79.99 winery direct Producer: Le Vieux PinDistributors: Winery Direct (BC), Empson (AB), Lifford (ON), Belanger (QC)
