Natalie's Score: 92/100
A luscious and layered Niagara Pinot Noir from the warm and spectacular 2010 vintage. Layers of fleshy ripe black cherry and raspberry with terrific balancing and racy acidity for so many dishes, from roast chicken and turkey to planked salmon and pork chops.
Pinot Noir food pairings: smoked salmon, grilled pork chops, coq au vin, beef bourguignon.

Reviews and Ratings
|Gwen Barton rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Big wine with nose of leather, tobacco, warm spice (cloves and cinnamon) and georgous dark fruit. Big, gentle tannins and warm finish. Would a wine for casseroles with lots of meat. Lovely wine.
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
The perfect harmony of fresh acidity, earthiness, fresh and dried fruit, delicate perfume and baking spices. The length is long with a tart cranberry/cherry finish. This Reserve Pinot has been masterly crafted from yields of less than 2 tonnes per acre and aged in combination new/used French oak. Tannins are youthful and polishing. I believe this wine will shine over the next 5 years. Highly recommend. Sip on it's own or enjoy with a meat lovers pizza.
Tasted: October 2016
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A beautiful Pinot from a classic vineyard ageing nicely. Watery, brick-hued garnet colour; aromas and flavours of roasted beet, cranberry and savoury leather with a sprinkle of grainy tannins. At its peak. Dive in tonight.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Aromatic cherry, cassis, vanilla, earth and milk chocolate. Well-integrated ripe red fruit, earth, vanilla and spice on palate with great acidity and spicy red fruit finish.
Tasted Oct. 2016
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Pale ruby with lush aromas of cherry, cassis, dried herbs, old leather, vanilla, and a touch of graphite. Big aromas for a Pinot Noir. In the mouth, the grippy tannins hit you first, followed by tart cherry flavours. Very good, but in five years will probably be amazing.
|Cherie Cole rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Let this one breathe in your glass before taking a sip and you'll be pleased you did. Aromas consist of cherry, forest floor and wet, autumn leaves with sweet spice notes. The cherry and red fruit notes come alive with food. Medium body with good tannins. Pair with soft cheeses or grilled salmon. Tasted Oct 02, 2016.
|Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
