|Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Cherry and vanilla aromas carry through on the palette with a balanced acidity, light tannins, and a long peppery finish making this a perfect pairing with holiday nibbles and great friends. 2012 was a stellar year for grape growing in Niagara, and I absolutely love this wonderful expression of this varietal!
|Astrid Young - Sommelier ISG CAPS rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
An inviting nose bursting with black and tart cherry fruit, as well as field berries galore. Elegantly textured, showing at least a 12 month new French oak treatment by telltale hints of caramel, chocolate and mocha. Finishes with a meaty, savory note and ripe tannins. love it. Seared duck breast, blueberry reduction, polenta, braised red cabbage.
|Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
What a pleasant surprise of a Pinot! If I was blind tasting this wine, I'd have guessed it was a New Zealand Central Otago style Pinot (and at half the price!). This Pinot is a lovely light wine with cherry, tart cranberry and hint of smokey notes; and a great balance of acidity and tannins. Pair with smoked holiday ham, pork tenderloin roast or braised beef.

The G. Marquis Vineyards The Silver Line Pinot Noir 2012 is a must try wine! This very aromatic pinot features cherry, raspberry, and spice. Nice smoke and vanilla notes. Great value! Tasted November 2016 (90/100)
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Cherry and a hint of earthy smokiness on the nose, following through on the palette with more pepper, sour cherry, fine tannins. Sip with smoked duck pate. Great pinot at a great price!
|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Cherry, cherry, cherry! Bright in colour and pops up predominantly on the nose! A hint of tobacco and spices. I'm already picturing a crusty, rosemary herbed roast pork tenderloin to accompany.
|Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
A very aromatic PInot Noir with aromas of vanilla, cloves and red plums. The palate starts with tart red plums, cherries and vanilla, then adds a peppery note and a hint of tobacco. Long spicy vanilla finish. Great versatility with food matches-pork, duck, turkey.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
A medium garnet, with aromas of eucalyptus, mint, raspberry, and cranberry. A bright, peppery taste with some grippy tannins. Pair with BBQ pork dishes.

Floral and fragrant pinot noir. Aromas of cherry, mocha and some earthy notes, also a bit of leather. Light and bright, cherry and field berries on the palate. Tart, but balanced.Try this with lamb or maybe turkey with cranberry sauce.
