Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $26 ($29.90 including taxes)
Production: 891 cases
Date Tasted: May 28th, 2015
Tasting Notes: Sticking to its mandate, delivering a Syrah focused on the aromatic and feminine qualities of the grape, the 2013 vintage of Le Vieux Pin's Cuvée Violette delights with warm, soothing and complex aromas of raspberry, violets, vanilla, white chocolate, white pepper and tapenade. The medium-bodied palate offers a nice balance of elegant tannins, a spicy mouth-feel, bright dark cherry and creamy oak flavours. Ready to be enjoyed now but should hold over the next 2-4 years. Drink now-2019.
