Natalie's Score: 90/100

Vintages Wine Panel: The Silver Line is G. Marquis' top line. Medium ruby in the glass, this offers suggestions of strawberry jam, mineral and cherry with touches of smoke and licorice. Dry and medium bodied, the palate is smooth and round and delectably young and fresh. Ripe fruit with fleshy tannins and a racy acidity. Enjoy this first peek at the warmth of Niagara's 2010 vintage. My note: Satin smooth with cherry aromas. Lovely and medium-bodied. Slips down dangerously easy. This is an amazing price for pinot noir of this quality.

Pinot Noir food pairings: grilled tuna steak.

I have 2x2012 vintage

My "house" Pinot Noir. Very Burgundian.
Sara Connelly reviewed this wine as follows:

This is an intense Pinot Noir! Expect a big mouthful of cherries, with some smoke and mineral, and gritty tannins.
