Natalie's Score: 90/100
A rich, complex pinot noir from a terrific vintage for Niagara. This has black cherries and smoke with great balancing acidity for food. Almost full-bodied, very rich with a long finish. Pair it with pork tenderloin.
Pinot Noir food pairings: seared tuna, grilled salmon, roasted turkey.

Reviews and Ratings
|Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Lots of aroma's coming from this glass! This is a good value pinot - cranberry, plum and a touch of rose on the nose. Medium body with some residual peppery heat. The bright acidity would pair well with a pasta dish!
|Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
So pretty in the glass! Harmonious, fruity and quite an appealing pinot noir. Very versatile - lovely on its own or try it with mild cheeses and pates.
|Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A light garnet Pinot with smoke, cherry, and floral aromas. Tart cherry and plum in the taste, with bright acidy and silky tannins contrasting the softer aromas. A nice wine for roast turkey.
|Astrid Young - Sommelier ISG CAPS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
This wine is always right on the money. Don't be fooled by its shyness in the color department, it can do battle with almost any food, from a meatball sandwich to vindaloo (trust me on this). Really nice florals up front, rose petals and exotic tea spices. There is a creaminess on the mid palate that always reminds me of strawberry Campino candy. Strawberry and rhubarb pie, with a hint of stewed fruit at the back, perfectly ripe, good balance overall.
|Heather Wall - CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Perfect for Christmas turkey with all the fixings. Pretty pale garnet in the glass, this medium-bodied lovely delivers ripe red berries, cherries, floral, warm spices and open hearth smokiness. Tannins are smooth and acidity balanced keeping fruit preserved. The length is long with a warm silky finish. A bargain at $17! Tastes like $$$.
Perfect Pizza Partner, meaty lasagne, cheese plate, on it's own.
Tasted: November 2014
|Shelley Harris rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
This wine is full of a blend of peppery, smoky and floral aromas followed by cherry and plum tastes. Would be well-served with a spicy Moroccan chicken tagine full of spices of fennel, mint, and harissa!
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Beautiful garnet colour. Cedar, cherry and pepper aromas, fragrant but light. Light cherry and pepper on the palate, soft tannin and nice acidity. Another great turkey wine.
|Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:|
The nose evokes a cabin in the country, but furnished in a Laura Ashley style. Slightly smokey,with delicate dust motes lazily floating in a sunbeam.The mouthfeel is quite on the light side (It won't wake the cat, for sure), but not unpleasant at all.With a summer salad and some grilled chicken breast.
