Anthony Gismondi (Vancouver Sun) Review: 2011 Equinoxe Syrah
I’m convinced the cool 2011 growing season is behind this fabulous scented red. Dry and firm; if you close your eyes you would think with it’s a Northern Rhone. The spice, the bacon, the white pepper the floral notes everything comes together here with licorice and superb balance. So impressive in the mouth and long and it is still just a baby. There is one percent viognier co-fermented in the mix. Serve now with lamb chops or cellar five years.
