Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

G. Marquis Silver Line Pinot Noir is a great example of a value-priced Ontario Pinot. Expressive aromas and flavour with tart cherry, plum, hibiscus, mushroom, and dried herbs on the nose and palate. Medium bodied with delicate tannins, this would be great with pan seared lamb lollipops with rosemary and dijon. Tasted December 2016. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A typical Pinot from Niagara-on-the-Lake. Light cherry colour. Sour cherry, dusky and earthy notes on the nose. Tart cherry flavours with fresh acidity and smooth tannins. Medium-long fruit finish. Pair with pork tenderloin brushed with olive oil and rosemary. Tasted March 13, 2017.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Savoury, medium-bodied, with a nice garnet hue. Subtle sour cherry takes a back seat to a core of anise, spice and earthy flavours and stemmy but supple tannins. Great with herb-crusted grilled pork chops.
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

This pinot noir is a bit young yet. It needs a bit more time to come together. It opens up to rose and florals on the nose. Palate has a hint of cinnamon spice. Medium wieight.

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.
