A gorgeous, open-textured Pinot from Niagara, featuring black cherry, warm spice and a hint of red briar. Gorgeous length, and surprising density for Niagara. Just lovely. 93 Points. (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
|David Skinner rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Medium dark cherry colour. Cherry, strawberry and ripe red fruits dominate the aromas with great support from elements of dried cranberry and mocha. Medium full body and nice balance of crisp acidity and supple tannins. Plenty of red fruit flavours with strawberries and cranberry. A long finish with plenty of character.
Delicious with duck confit crepes or lamb and fig brochettes.

A red cherry and bramble aroma that characterize Pinot Noir. A wonderful surprise from Niagara. Spicy cherries and raspberries on the palate, this a well balanced Pinot that would pair with a range of dishes from roast chicken, pork or beef.

Mellow, fruity, smooth and scrumptious! The Arterra Pinot Noir is showing lovely cherry, flint (and graphite minerality), and fine dried sage notes. It' light bodied with balanced acidity, smooth tannins and texture and a long cherry-smoke finish. Enjoy with a spicy Jambalaya. Tasted Jan 2017 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca

|Terry Jeans - Certified S rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A fuller-bodied Pinot, with layers of cherries, and red fruit. Medium tannins, and good acidity make this a good bet with richer red meat dishes. Very nice.
|Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Wow! A great Niagara Pinot noir - 2015 vintage offering juicy red fruit, tart cherry, stone minerality, well balanced integrated medium tannins and alcohol. A long finish with persistence of cherry, blackberry. Pairs exceptionally well with smoked cheddar and Italian crustini or easily on its own. Tasted Nov 2016 - rated 90/100
|Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A highly aromatic Niagara Pinot Noir with aromas of black cherries, black berries, baking spice and a hint of cigar smoke. The black fruit and spice flavours follow through on the finish. This is a flavourful and easy drinking light bodied red with pleseant acidity. It will pair well with grilled white meats, salmon or sharp and older cheeses.
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Very interesting pinot from Niagra region. It has dark plum aroma on the nose instead of typical cherry, fresh berries like most pinot. On the palate, you can continue to taste that dark plum fruit and acidity. It offers a very clean taste and smooth finish. A good sipping pinot
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A fine Niagara Pinot with classic dusty raspberry, cherry, beet and herb and earth notes, fine tannins and nicely balanced acidity. Try it with a charcuterie board of Niagara salami and cheeses.
|Melanie Aubert rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
In the glass, the wine is medium ruby bordering on garnet. On the nose, lots of cherry, blackberry and black currant, followed by wafts of forest floor, cedar, menthol, spice and smoke. There's lots going on here! This medium-bodied pinot shows similar notes on the palate, with the addition of slightly vegetal or mineral aspects as well as chocolate from oak aging. The tannins are well integrated, making for a well-rounded, easy-drinking, food-friendly wine. Paired very nicely with my sausage and tortellini soup!
