Le Vieux Pin 2015 "Cuvée Violette" Syrah (Okanagan Valley) BC
Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $28.99 + taxes
Production: 1293 cases
Date Tasted: May 29th, 2017
Tasting Notes: Sourced from multiple, distinct Southern Okanagan Valley sub-appellations and blended together with 1% Roussanne to create a feminine Syrah with cherry and black raspberry fruit, aromatic, floral notes and a layer of sensual, savoury characters: white pepper, vanilla, green olives and sweet incense throughout. Medium bodied, yet, intense in its purity of flavour with a long, mouth-watering finish of spice, oak and wild berry acidity. Ready to be enjoyed now or hold for another 3-4 years. Drink now-2021.
