Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This beautiful Okanagan Pinot, from Canada's Wine Capital, is a terrific example of the world-class wines Burrowing Owl is producing from their picturesque winery located along the Black Sage Road in Oliver, BC. Their 2015 Pinot shows a medium ruby red colour with a garnet hue. Very complex, the nose and palate offer dried cherry and blueberry, black sage, cedar, clove, with a hint of cacao and violet. The palate is fresh and layered, with perfectly integrated fruit, acid, and faint tannins. This is a robust yet very elegant Pinot that will complement a wide range of dishes from creamy mushroom risotto, Waygu beef, to roasted quail with fois gras. You can't go wrong pairing a fine meal with this versatile and delicious wine. Tasted September 2017. 92+ points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
From Burrowing Owl Wine Estate, the 2015 Pinot Noir is dark red in the glass, rich and spicy with ripe cherry, spice and typical violet earthiness derived from the Pinot Noir grape. The estate is operated by the Wyse family. This is a great wine for the grill. - Community Wine Reviews
