Natalie's Score: 93/100
Gorgeous aromas of tart cherry, cranberry and toasted almond on the nose. This is a vibrant, well-crafted Ontario Pinot Noir. Norm Hardie's winery is in Prince Edward County but the fruit for this wine comes from Niagara. It's a real stunner. Pair with grilled seafood.
Pinot Noir food pairings: veal medallions, lamb in a red wine sauce, roasted pork loin, Tourtière, prime rib roasted.

|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Stunning tangy ruby gem. Well-balanced, dry Pinot Noir, medium-plus bodied. Offers a long tart finish, with persistence of cherry, plum and leather. Wet limestone chalky minerality. Paired well with BBQ salmon and sautéed veggies and equally well on it's own after supper. Tasted 2015 vintage in August 2017. 91 points. BespokeTastings
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Aromatic cherry, earthy underbrush and cedar notes. Sumptuous tart cherry flavours linger on and on with mild tannins and a clean juicy cherry finish. A remarkable well-balanced (classically) mouthwatering and earthy Pinot Noir by Norman Hardie. Enjoy with herb and dijon crusted pork tenderloin. Tasted Aug 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca

Bold, savoury aromas from Norman Hardie; sourcing fruit from Niagara instead of Prince Edward County. It's not just an interesting exercise for a Prince Edward icon to try his hand at a different region's style. It's pretty tasty.
Garnet colouration; tiny amount of bricking.
Earthy rose, orange, cherry, and beety Niagara typicality.
Flavours of toasted nut, smoke, cherry, beets, blackberry, and dried cranberry.
There's some savoury tannin and lots of concentration. It's well made and delicious.
Paired with some fine epoisse, figs, and other simple charcuterie it was excellent. Good contemplative sipper.
