Reviews and Ratings

Simon Chen rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Beautiful bright cherry, floral aromas on this pinot noir. It is silky, the right amount of fruits and acid and smooth finish. A very well-made daily drinking pinot noir that can please everyone.
Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A fruit-forward Pinot Noir with aromas of sour cherry, ripe field strawberries, hints of honey, cinnamon, and chocolate.

On the palate, it is lighter bodied with gentle tannins and sour cherry and tart red berry flavours. At the finish, which is fairly long, there is a touch of sweet spice and a slightly smoky finish.

Overall, very tasty. Suggested wine-food pairing: Roasted pork.

Tasted July 2018
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Value focused Ontario Pinot Noir showing ruby red with a garnet hue. Medium bodied, light tannins, medium plus acidity, big ripe fruit. Ripe raspberries, cherry, floral notes, baking spices, savoury. Pairs well with grilled salmon steaks or roasted chicken. Tasted 2017 vintage in July 2018. 90 points #greatvalue #crowdpleaser
David Skinner rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Translucent light cherry with a slightly garnet rim. Lightly fruited on the nose with cherry and some earthy notes. Early flavours of cherry and raspberry are complimented by light tannin to nicely balance the acidity. Medium long fruit-driven finish.
