Natalie's Score: 92/100

I'm a huge fan of this wine and recommend it year after year. Love the tart cherry aromas and flavours. It's satin-textured, medium-bodied and ultimately pleasurable.

Pinot Noir food pairings: herbed Ontario lamb chops, simple pork dish like, cherry wood-smoked pork loin, baked or smoked salmon.

A Pinot Noir that delivers the depth of flavour and ripeness promised by the torrid 2010 vintage. A late spring frost reduced our crop by about a third; as a result yields averaged a paltry 1.2 T/hA. All fruit for this bottling was tended by the Rosehall Run viticultural team and was grown in the Hillier area of PEC and harvested between the third week of September and the first week of October.
This is a vintage for hedonists, not technicians. Higher pH, lower acidity and masses of fruit with super ripe tannins are all expected – the delicacy and floral notes that emerge after 15 minutes are the surprise.
Elevage in French barriques for 8-14 months with about 15% new yields a well-integrated oak profile.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
