Reviews and Ratings

Spicy, dark and rich BC Pinot Noir with layers of rich fleshy ripe red berry flavours. Full-bodied with a long finish. Pair with game meats. MINE: A benchmark BC Pinot Noir from Okanagan Valley with a supple, silky texture. The BC winery Burrowing Owl first made Pinot Noir wine in 1999. This red wine bears the hallmark climate and soil of he Okanagan Valley. OTHER: Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review: Light ruby red with a garnet hue, the nose shows lifted notes of dark cherry, dried herbs, and baking spice. Delicious layers of fruit, spice, and herbs, with a savoury and textured finish. Lovely Pinot! Tasted June 2016. 91 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca. OTHER: Operated by the Wyse family, Burrowing Owl is one of the brightest jewels in the BC winemaking crown. This Pinot Noir is typically crafted in an earthy, self-assured style that offers a wide breadth of complex, richly layered flavours. Expect a structured, balanced wine with smoky ripe dark fruit, spice and mineral tones that will evolve for 3-5 years. Great with food from the grills, try it with cedar-planked salmon or grilled steak (Vintages Panel, updated). - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
