Le Vieux Pin Syrah Cuvée Classique 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis is the big brother to LVP's floral Cuvée Violette. Tight and youthful, with more oak than the previous vintage which is poking through a bit at this young stage, but will surely be swallowed with a welcome rest in the cellar. This has the structure and potency, plus elegance and purity, to age effortlessly. Bracketed by firm walnut-laden sides, this has lovely brisk spicing, with more structure housing the black cherry, raspberry, graphite and leather fruit. Lovely showing.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)
