Flat Rock Cellars Pinot Noir 2016

Niagara Peninsula, Ontario V.Q.A., Canada
6 days ago

Jane scored this wine: 91/100

Sustainably crafted in Ontario's Twenty Mile Bench VQA region. Tart cherry, sous bois and mocha aromas, followed by the same on a smooth, well-balanced palate that exhibits excellent acidity. Yummy mocha lingers on the finish. This is the Pinot Noir that makes Ontario proud! Very food-friendly, so you can serve it with turkey, roast duck, cod stew or chocolate cake. Tasted Sept. 2018

Lots of cassis and ripe strawberry on the nose with a slight eucalyptus. Cassis and dried herbs, with slight mint and eucalyptus on the palate. Enjoy with seared steak. Tasted Sept. 2018

Ribera Del Duero D.O., Spain

Jane scored this wine: 94/100

Heavenly aromas of ripe cherries, dark chocolate, sous bois and tobacco. Rich, layered palate replays these with exquisite balance and mouthwatering acidity. Velvety tannins and a lingering finish that goes on and on. Pair with Parmesan cheese or roast suckling lamb. Tasted Sept. 2018

100% Albariño from Spain’s Rias Baixas region. Mainly citrus lime on nose, with lime zest, tart apple and melon notes on the crisp palate. Ideal with seafood stew or grilled garlic shrimp. Tasted Sept. 2018
