Gorgeous Niagara Pinot Noir grown in the Lowery Vineyard. Aromas of cherry, fresh earth and violets. This wine was deftly aged in oak barrels. Pair with duck.
Pinot Noir food pairings: veal stew with sautéed vegetables served with gnocchi, roasted pork loin with a glaze of herbs, cloves, and brown sugar, Tourtière, roast beef, turkey.

|Greg Hughes rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:|
This is definitely a wine to hold back in the cellar a bit. Yes, it is really tasty now, but it has the stuff to be much better even in two years.
This wine captured the sunny personality of Niagara, but 2014 afforded a lot more cool-climate variation (somenice spice and structured tannin).
Aromas of chicory coffee, cherry, beet sauce, raspberry, violet, and rosehip.
The flavours are silky, but structured. Gently extracted flavours of red and black cherry, tobacco, coffee, raspberry, blackberry, and plum.
Lowrey is one of the few places in Niagara that produces mostly for commercial wineries to buy. Their land is extremely small and limited. The fruit they produce is some of the most highly regarded and sought after in Niagara. The family that runs the property makes a tiny amount of wine under the name 5-Rows. Like Bachelder's Lowrey, it is hard to find but always well worth the search. Reviewer's choice.
|Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Pale ruby colour with a garnet hue. On the nose - Strawberry, raspberry, licorice, anise, baking spices with a hint of earth and wet leaves. Also some iron and gamey blood notes. Flavours reveal dashes of underripe strawberry, licorice, dark chocolate, raspberries and chewy earth. Much reflected from the aromas straight into the palate. Well balanced, medium minus body, tannins and finish with A higher, medium acidity. This is a pleasure to drink on its own or to try pairing with some smoked oysters and gouda cheese. Delectable. 92 points

The Lowery Vineyard has a rich terroir of clay and limestone soils - this Pinot Noir has lovely aromas of with cherry, baking spice, earth and smoke. The palate has lots of tart cherry, a hint of vanilla, violet and smoky undertones. It is beautifully crafted and well balanced.
|From St. David's Bench in the Niagara Peninsula, Bachelder Lowrey Vineyard Old Vines (2014) is a rich Pinot Noir with grapes grown in the Lowery Vineyard. On the nose, the wine is floral with ripe cherry and raspberry with more on the palate. This wine is elegant, balanced with great acidity -- a perfect pairing to an herbed rack of lamb. - Community Wine Reviews|
