Le Vieux Pin Equinoxe Syrah 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaEquinoxe is the flagship syrah of LVP. This comes from a few sites in the southern Okanagan, and vines nearing 20 years. This spent 18 months in French oak (approximately half new) before bottling unfined and unfiltered. Quite a masterful red, very structural and muscular, but so well knit and in balance. This cascades wild black plums, cassis, black cherry, anise along the lengthy palate, textured with fine wood spices, cracked peppercorn, and livened with stony minerality to a sweetly spiced finish. Drinking beautifully now, and will continue to cellar over the next 5-10 years easily.Tasted: 10 March 2021Tasted by: Prices: BC 89.99 winery online/direct Producer: Le Vieux PinDistributors: Winery Direct
