Reviews and Ratings

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

What a steal! The bargain for quality is astounding! This medium-bodied Niagara Pinot Noir shows long intense cherry, floral, and spice notes and a long scrumptious mouthwatering acidity. A great taco wine right here! Tasted April 2017 by @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Tart and tasty. Ruby red with a garnet hue. Organic viticulture. Fantastic mouthwatering acidity. well-balanced medium intensity fruit, moderate alcohol 13% ABV, silky smooth medium tannins. Medium finish with persistence of cherry, baking spice, minerality. Tasting the terroir in every sip. Pairs well with herb roasted chicken, turkey dinner, pork roast. Drinking well likewise on it's own. Tasted April 2017. 91 points.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This is a lovely Pinot from Niagara showcasing the region. Aromas are complex and bold, especially as it opens up, and include cherry, cranberry, earth and a bit of smoke. There is a nice balance of earthy and fruity notes. The body is medium, and flavours are more fruit forward on the palate, combined with nice bright acidity and some medium - tannin. The finish is long. This wine is lovely to enjoy on its own but would also pair well with a wide variety of foods, from pork to turkey or grilled mushrooms.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Splendid nose on this Niagara Pinot - berries galore: cranberry, rhubarb, cherry and on the palate, beet, cranberry, sour raspberry, cured meat and smokey-earthy-savoury flavours. Tart with fine tannins. Delicious! Pair with elk tenderloin with cranberry reduction. Tasted again June 2017
Gwen Barton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Rich aromas and flavours of cherry and raspberry. A touch of spice, violet and forest floor add to the complexity. Supple tannins with bright acidity make for a well- balanced, enjoyable wine. Pair with Brie stuffed mushrooms
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A burgundy style organic Pinot sourced from three different vineyards of different altitudes to give complexity to the wine. Also, fermentation was with natural yeasts. Typical aromas of barnyard, cranberry and sour cherry. Flavours of raspberry and cherry ; medium tannins and acidity with a medium finish. If you look closely at the label you will see that it's a map of the Niagara area around Lake Ontario!
Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Bright garnet in the glass, with exploding backyard aromas - cherries, rhubarb, and earthy notes. A hit of acidity mid-palate, with a lingering cherry finish.
Perfect with ham and turkey dishes.
Tasted May 2017.
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted July 1, 2017, Canada Day Selection. Colour pale ruby minus, medium legs. Aromas of sweet cherry, raspberry, strawberry, red licorice, rose, dried herbs. Taste dry and fruity, medium plus acidity. Soft tannins, and light body. Delicious mouth watering wine. You want to keep coming back for more. Paired with cedar planked salmon, cumin and maple syrup flavoured.
