Le Vieux Pin Winery
Color: | Varietal: | Vintage: 2007 | Size:

The 2007 vintage was an ideal growing season with consistent temperatures. There was above average rainfall in the month of June and some early fall cooling, but the balanced temperatures and warm fall brought new levels of complexity to this years reds. Our merlot Reserve comes from a very specific block of 15 year old vines on the south end of the Golden Mile. Intense and rich flavours of blueberry and cherry with layers of smoke, black pepper and tobacco. Firm tannins frame the palate as the flavours transform into plum and blackberry with a very long finish of espresso and mocha. A truly impressive wine.

The calibre of fruit and style of winemaking have designed this wine to age gracefully for 10+ years.

Recommended Food Pairing:

Rich and intense flavours and textures will tame the power and intensity of this wine. A grilled rib eye over blue cheese polenta or lamb tagine with raisin and mint couscous will temper the tannins and add complexity to the flavours and finish.
