Le Vieux Pin Equinoxe Syrah 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaEquinoxe is the flagship syrah of Le Vieux Pin, a winery that has made its name on its mastery of the grape in the Southern Okanagan. This year's comes from various vineyards and vines in their teenage years, spent 19 months in French oak (58% new) before bottling unfined and lightly filtered. The late pick of these grapes is reflected in the very ripe fruit, filled with woven with prune, worked leather, anise, on a plumped, full palate. Tannins are worn soft with time, and though this is pleasant drinking now (especially with braises), this lacks the energy to propel it far into the future.
