Equinoxe Syrah 09 - Le Vieux Pin

Last night, we got to enjoy the Equinoxe Syrah 09 - Le Vieux Pin 

First and foremost, I got the Decanter out and transferred the wine and had it sit for a good forty five minutes to one hour before serving. That was recommended by my man 'Kam Kamrani at Le Vieux Pin.
- We found a little (very little) Tingling on the tongue from the get go, I like that refreshment.. ;-)

- Taste of Fruits and wild Berries jumps at you,

- Med Dry, the taste stays in for a good minute,  simply awesome,

- Red light touch of ruby,

- At the second taste  5 minutes later, a delicate smoky taste seems do  develop, I knew that  this  wine was only getting better. (by now, over one hour had past since i cracked the  seal, and this baby was getting better, not loosing its taste but in full evolution).

-Taste and smell of Dark chocolate, and the Berries tastes from earlier and a hint of Leather.

- Long final of light oak/wooden taste.
- Also, I did not feel any sulfites skin reactions as I am intolerant to it. For me that is great news.

Comments: If you think you knew everything about Syrah. Think again. Wait till you taste this B.C. Greatness

Recommendation: If you can get your hands on this great Canadian Wine.. do it.

Final toughs:  The biggest challenge will be to keep another bottle of Equinoxe wine away from the table.

Chris On Mojo Score: 94+

Special thanks: Kam, Janet from  Le Vieux Pin for sorting out the order.

Wine and Stuff

After following on Tweeter Ronald Georges from Montreal Radio-Canada : I certainly got interested at finding what was the big deal with Shiraz Equinox 2009 from Le Vieux Pin Winery in B-C Canada. GO Check it out  for yourself.
I got online last night and a shipment of the wine is on its way home. That about all I can say about it for  now. I will  taste it  when it arrives in Gatineau . I had the chance to speak with Kam Kamrani  from the winery while on the phone and arranging for the shipment. Really friendly folks, dedicated to their products. He understood my disappointment that they are all out of  750 Ml so I will have to turn myself to the 1/2 bottles. I omitted to ask if it Equinox Shiraz was bottles in Magnum. 

Will post images and comments on the wine soon.
