Équinoxe: equal day, equal night. Equal heat of the day, equal cool of the night. Equal new world, equal old world.

The 2021 Équinoxe Syrah, as in the past, is comprised of fruit grown in multiple plots throughout the South Okanagan Valley. A traditionally made Syrah in the sense that the sum is considered greater than its parts (lieux-dits trumping single cru ala Chez Jamet, JL Chave, Clape). The resulting effort is a very complex wine with dark garnet color that perfectly and effortlessly combines elements of both the old world and the new world styles. This monumental wine is at the same time feminine and masculine. It has grace and power, spice and florals, gamy and savory notes. Yin and yang come together to showcase a perfectly balanced Syrah. Similiarly to 2020, 2017 and 2015, 2021 Equinoxe Syrah is fuller, richer, deeper and more expansive. White peppercorn pokes its head out in an otherwise mostly black peppercorn and floral-dominated profile. With time in the glass, more wild floral notes come to the foreground. Upon release, 2020 Équinoxe Syrah is going to be more restrictive and youthful compared to many other vintages at release. 


Centuries ago, the black pepper spice trade launched voyages, wars, and epic tales.

Meat-Based: We suggest a seared New York steak paired with peppercorn sauce to fill the air with peppery goodness to celebrate the world’s single greatest spice.

Plant-Based: Portobello mushroom burger with pepper-garlic aioli or marinated tempeh steak with mushroom and peppercorn gravy is incredible too.
