Natalie's Score: 93/100

Lovely and juicy with fleshy cherry aromas and flavours. Liquid satin in a glass. Fleshy field cherries with a luxuriously smooth texture. Not heavy yet so full of character. Extremely elegant and versatile with many dishes. Lovely rich dark cherry aromas of the nose unfold to dark plum and some dried herbs on the palate. Full-bodied for pinot, yet balanced and elegant. Concentrated flavours in this BC VQA wine with a long finish. Polished tannins and elegant structure. Great craftsmanship here. Pair with planked salmon or grilled tuna. The wine is unfiltered and un-fined for maximum flavour. One of Canada's best.

Pinot Noir food pairings: Peking duck, rotisserie chicken stuffed, planked salmon.

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.

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.
