Reviews and Ratings

Valérie Dufour - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

The rubis robe is so light that you might think it is a dark rosé... or cranberry juice. Very subtle nose of red cherries. The mouth is simple, fruity and straight to the point. A very high quality pinot noir at a ridiculously low price. Buy buy buy. You can drink that alone, but also with duck or any other poultry. Coup de coeur!
Lynn van der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Brilliant garnet hue in the glass, heady aromas of violets, red cherries, vanilla, and a hint of cured meat, carry through with mouthwatering cherry and punchy acidity and tannins. Enjoy now, or lay it down for 3-5 years.
Nick Onischuk - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The Grange of Prince Edward Estate Winery Estate Pinot Noir 2013 is an absolute stunner at the price point of $16.95. This medium bodied wine is great on the nose and even better on the palate. Aromas and flavours of sour cherry, raspberry, cranberry and a bit of spice. Goes down very nicely! Tasted on November 29, 2015 (90/100)
Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A beautiful true PN colour in the glass. Elaborate aromas that change when opened over time. Classic cherry fruit along with soil and earth on the nose. Beautiful mouthfeel with sour cherries and a perfect replay of the earthy notes. An elegant beauty. Best now until 2017.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Aromas of tart cherry, cranberry, earthiness and a touch of dried herbs. The taste is again tart cherry and cranberry with a little of the dried herbs showing through. High acidity, a touch of tannins, and a medium cranberry finish. This is currently my "go-to" Thanksgiving turkey wine.
Bill Wright Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Gorgeous Pinot colour. Cherry, subtle earthiness. Good acid, tart cherries with spice. Medium feel in the mouth. Good with poached salmon.

Shelley Harris rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A medium-bodied red with aromas of earthiness, red berries and cherries and the same notes in the tastes. This earthy wine would pair well with the smokiness of a meal consisting of barbecued grilled vegetables and a cedar-planked salmon.
Sean O'Regan - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pale ruby, lovely nose with cherry, berry, spice and some earthy notes. Tangy acidity to the red berry, pomegranite, cherry and spice notes on a medium light frame. Very nice balance too. A solid value for cool-climate Pinot Noir - and very food friendly. Drink over the next 2-3 years.
Tasted November 2015
Trevor Sabourin - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Red cherry, cranberry, red licorice candy, rose petal, toasted coconut, and sweet tobacco aromas. The red fruit is a bit more tart on the palate, and some black pepper, anise, and green bean come out. Medium-high acidity and medium tannins. The alcohol seems a bit hot and the tannins, though not high, are a bit astringent, suggesting that this wine will be at its best in a couple more years.
Bright ruby hue with garnet tones. Nose shows ripe cherry and berry fruit with some earth and spiciness. On the palate fruit is rounded out with subtle spice and earth in the mid-palate, soft tannins give structure without overpowering the delicate flavours. Clean mineral finish.

Fermented in stainless steel, 28-day primary fermentation for extended maceration. Aged 24 months in neutral French oak barriques prior to bottling.
