Natalie's Score: 91/100

Rich cherry liqueur on the nose with blackberry jam and more layers of ripe berry flavour. Full-bodied and satin smooth. Superbly satisfying.

Roger rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Sequana Vineyards is a joint venture between Pinot genius James MacPhail (MacPhail Family Wines) and the Hess Collection. Hess let’s James do his Pinot thing and the result is a delicious full bodied Pinot Noir with complex flavors of black cherry, smokiness, spice and plum with even a hint of bacon. Get your lips around anything James MacPhail puts in a bottle.
Darlene Myers CAPS Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

I loved this Pinot Noir with its gorgeous flavors of black cherries, mint and a herbal earthiness. Plums and spice on the palate with cola notes and oak. Well structured, well done Pinot Noir.
Winemaker James MacPhail brings his touch to this ripe, delicious Pinot Noir. It explodes in raspberries and cherries, but it’s no more fruit bomb. Shows fine acidity and even a dusting of tannins that provide structural integrity. Really nice now, and should develop over the next 4-6 years. Score: 91 Source: Steve Heimoff, Wine Enthusiast
