Le Vieux Pin 2012 "Cuvée Classique" Syrah (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from the winery here
Production: 393 cases
Date Tasted: January 30th, 2015
Tasting Notes: A denser, more masculine Syrah than its vintage cousin, the "Cuvée Violette", with concentrated cool berry and menthol aromas supported by handsome cherry-cola, vanilla-spice and light incense notes. This is a nose you can appreciate for hours.
The palate is equally impressive with a concentrated, yet, elegant medley of cherry, white pepper and savoury flavours supported by fine tannins and a great kick of acid before the long, balanced finish takes over.
Ready to go now, though, will age comfortably in your cellar for another 5-6 years. Drink now-2020.
