Le Vieux Pin Syrah Cuvée Classique 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is the big brother to LVP's floral Cuvée Violette. Savoury and structured black fruit by way of light smoke, tobacco and big peppery seasoning, this is quite firm, holding the sides tightly in with firm, grippy tannins. From the super warm 2015 vintage, this was aged in 225 and 300L barrels (20 percent new) for 14 months, and bottled unfined. Drinking well now, and will continue to hold for years in the cellar.Tasted: 20 October 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 44.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Le Vieux PinDistributors: Winery Direct (BC), Empson (AB), Lifford (ON), Belanger (QC)
