Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

G. Marquis Silver Line Pinot Noir is a great example of a value-priced Ontario Pinot. Expressive aromas and flavour with tart cherry, plum, hibiscus, mushroom, and dried herbs on the nose and palate. Medium bodied with delicate tannins, this would be great with pan seared lamb lollipops with rosemary and dijon. Tasted December 2016. 89 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Lori Kilmartin WSET3 - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A typical Pinot from Niagara-on-the-Lake. Light cherry colour. Sour cherry, dusky and earthy notes on the nose. Tart cherry flavours with fresh acidity and smooth tannins. Medium-long fruit finish. Pair with pork tenderloin brushed with olive oil and rosemary. Tasted March 13, 2017.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Savoury, medium-bodied, with a nice garnet hue. Subtle sour cherry takes a back seat to a core of anise, spice and earthy flavours and stemmy but supple tannins. Great with herb-crusted grilled pork chops.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A very pleasant Niagara-on-the-Lake Pinot Noir by G. Marquis. A pretty pale garnet colour with an inviting brick hue. An intricate bouquet of cherries, strawberries, cola, sweet smoke and forested wild flowers. Flavours reveal red plums, steeped tea, fresh basil and toasted hickory almonds. Acidity is bright yet balances nicely with distinct medium tannins and a medium minus body. Pair with grilled chicken and cremini mushrooms. 88 points
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

This pinot noir is a bit young yet. It needs a bit more time to come together. It opens up to rose and florals on the nose. Palate has a hint of cinnamon spice. Medium wieight.
From Canada's Niagara-on-the-Lake wine region, G. Marquis, The Silver Line Pinot Noir is a ripe red berry, cherry, dry and medium-bodied PN and great value under $20. Wine grapes were hand-harvested off of 25-year old vines. Elegant and juicy. Pair with grilled salmon. - Community Wine Reviews
