Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vintages Wine Panel: Medium purple in the glass. Pretty floral, sandalwood, earth and raspberry aromas. Very youthful yet. Dry, light bodied, and exquisitely elegant with tightly knit tannins bringing structure. Complex, medium-long finish. Promises to be an excellent food wine. Cellar it for 2-3 years, or enjoy tonight. My note: Cherry-beetroot with tart edges. I like Norm’s style. He’s working his way to pure genius. Dark spices on the finish with some pleasant sour cherry. Vote Norm!

Pinot Noir food pairings: herbed veal cooked rare.

I have nothing funny to compare this wine to. This is hands-down one of the best Pinot's I have tasted from Ontario. Well done Norm. Take this to dinner when you come to my house!!
Corinna Horton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Earthy, tart, with bold fruit, yet stunningly fresh. The complexities of this wine boggle the taste buds. As it opens it creates new flavour in soul of the mouth; first floral, then cherry, finally beet. Hardie makes some beautiful Pinots, don't waste a drop.
Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Top notch Pinot Noir from the County. Red cherries, sweet earth, beetroot, and dried currants dance on the nose and palate. Pair with grilled Sockeye salmon. Still willing to side with Central Coast California Pinot at this price. 89 points. (
