|Tania Thomas - CSW, WSET ADV rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:|
The Okanagan Valley in British Columbia’s region of Canada is one of the most northerly wine growing regions in the world, not always blessed with stellar summers. The exceptionally warm season of 2012 with its hot and dry summer allowed for much longer ripening season and produced much riper, fruit expressive wines. This is an elegant and complex; medium bodied Pinot Noir with the ripe strawberry nose and the palate bursting with plum and earthy notes, nicely balanced with lively acidity and smooth tannins. Delicious with BC’s grilled sockeye salmon and delicate morel mushrooms.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This delicious Pinot Noir has a rich, earthy aroma that became more intense as the wine opened up. There was some red, bright fruit like strawberries on the nose as well. The earthy taste came through on the palate as well as some bright fruit flavours, nice acidity and a clean finish. Perfect for sipping slightly chilled on this beautiful summer evening or with some pork or grilled veggies on the Barbeque.
