Natalie's Score: 93/100

A spectacular Pinot Noir from an excellent producer in a great year -- the perfect storm conditions to create a glorious and hedonistic tempest in your glass. Seductive fleshy cherry and cranberry with spice on the nose and palate of this ethereal Ontario Pinot Noir. Winemaker Thomas Bachelder is a master; he belongs with the Justice League of Super Heroes: Vine Man! Pair with more of the same.

Pinot Noir food pairings: lamb and pilaf casserole, roast leg of lamb in rosemary and garlic, lamb chops with Danish blue cheese.

Reviews and Ratings

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This earthy Pinot Noir has aromas of ripe cherries, strawberries and raspberries, as well as truffle, underwood, and a touch of leather and spicy incense. On the palate, tart cherries and juicy strawberries with silky tannins and a slight bitter finish.This is a very enjoyable and elegant wine.

Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

From Ontario’s Niagara Peninsula, Queylus is arguably one of the most talented winemakers in Canada. It’s earthy, with light notes of cherry, strawberry, and some gentle tannins; as well as lingering acidity of sour cherry, and good length and development on the palate. A versatile, food-friendly wine, pair it with fish to duck, Cornish hen to steak tartar.
Greg Hughes rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Deliciously balancing earthiness and ripeness. Here is benchnmark Pinot for Niagara.
This colour is perfect for Pinot. Not too deep, but soft and delicate garnet (red and some orange).
Beautiful forest floor, cherries, apple skin, chestnut, musky baking spice, and chicory.
Great acidity and ripeness (2014 was quote cool, so that is really impressive). Lovely; beginning to end!
Bachelder has worked with and as a negociant in Bourgogne and has used his experience and foresight to craft wines of beauty in Niagara. This is one of Canada's star winemakers.
Domaine Queylus Tradition (2014) is a medium-bodied Pinot Noir from the Niagara Peninsula wine region. Sensuous ripe cherries followed by sweet cake spice and dried herbs and flowers wrapped up in mouth-watering acidity. Tannins are smooth. Drink now and pair with lamburgers. - Community Wine Reviews
