Natalie's Score: 89/100

Subtle, not fruit forward. Lovely spicy-earthy notes with some bright cherries and brambly fruit on the middle palate and a supple, satin texture. Medium-bodied and balanced. Long, dry, refreshing finish. Speck Family Reserve Pinot Noir food pairings: mushrooms, pork liver pates, tuna, grilled salmon, roasted chicken, duck and other game birds.

More Wine Reviews and Ratings

• Harvest Date: September 24th-October 3rd, 2007
• Yields of 1 ½ Tonnes / acre and below (~25 hL/ha)
• Fermented in stainless steel then aged in French Oak, with 33% new.
• The biggest quality factor involved in making Pinot Noir is yield in the vineyard. No short cuts to quality exist. It is not that Pinot Noir must be big, but rather that good, ageworthy and interesting Pinot Noir comes at great cost in the vineyard. This variety, produced as we have made this wine, is a rare example of the future of Niagara wines – and it shows the difficult but worthwhile path that our terroir has chosen for us.
