Natalie's Score: 88/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Pure Pinot nose featuring aromas of sour cherry, raspberry, beetroot and smoked/dried meat. Dry and balanced wine with dusty tannins for some potentially mid- to long-term ageing (3-5+ years). The fruit is hiding intriguingly under the tannins, waiting to come forth. This wine will shine with time. If you want to crack it open tonight, decant it for two hours. My note: Pinot Noir is becoming Ontario’s benchmark red wine but it’s very difficult to grow and make. Lots of dark cherry and wild forest notes here. This pinot is lovely and rustic with the soul of the earth in its heart.

Pinot Noir food pairings: roast beef, roasted parsnips, charcuterie plate, roast fowl with jus.

Sara M WSET Advanced rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Well balanced and expressive Pinot showing notes of raspberry, earth and a hint of leafiness. May benefit from 3-5 years of aging maximum. A great representative of Canadian Pinot Noir.
