|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
Earthy and bright, and spicy while still very light. Nose is very earthy - mushroom, forest floor, cranberry and tomato. Very fresh, bright cherry flavor, ending with lots of black pepper. the acidity makes it a great food wine, pair with roasted root vegetables, tomato sauces, mushrooms, and white meat or darker-fleshed fish.

Pinot Noir lovers, put this must-try on your list!
Surprisingly heady floral and sweet cherry aromas transform into structured Pinot Noir flavours of tart cherry and vanilla.
Pair with your traditional holiday fare - turkey with all the fixings.
Enjoy now or lay down for a few more years.
Tasted November 2019.
|Colin McKone - Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Light ruby in colour with aromas of black cherry, tobacco, cedar, strawberry and cranberry. It is light bodied with medium-light tannins and light acidity with flavours of black cherry and spice. This would be versatile in paring with with food such as roasted chicken or turkey and salmon. Tasted on November 17, 2019.
|Simon Chen rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
slightly toasty and smoky aromas on the nose. Nice dark cherry, earthy, and warm mouth feel, followed by lingering tannin. A good representation of Niagara pinot!
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Lovely Niagara Pinot Noir!! Aromas of dark cherry, cranberry, warm spice and a hint of oak. Medium bodied and smooth on the palate with bright acidity and tart fruit flavours. Slightly earthy and spicy on the finish. Enjoy this lovely wine with anything from a charcuterie plate, to roasted salmon, to a turkey dinner.

Lovely graceful Pinot Noir which does quite a nice dance. Give it a few years if you can. If drank now you will see a beautifully textured PN with cherry/sour cherry accents perfect levels of newer oak. Aromas, flavours and textures all beautiful - just needs integration.
|David Skinner rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Light ruby colour with a clear rim. Black cherry, vanilla and some toasty oak aromas. Medium acidity and light tannin. Cherry, cranberry and spices on the palate. A medium long finish.
|Pam Hatton rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Ruby/cherry red with cherry, cranberry earthy and mushroom aromas. Red fruit, predominantly cherry and cranberry also on the palate. Soft tannins and juicy acidity leads to a finish with leather and vanilla tones. This will be even better with some age to integrate tertiary flavours
|Craig Haynes WSET3 FWS SWS IWS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Fruity and medium bodied. This Short Hills Bench pinot noir offers attractive notes of sweet cherry, strawberry and cedar. All supported with hints of earthiness and noticeable tannins. Lasting fruity finish.
|Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:|
Definitely on the lighter side, there are no rough edges to this Pinot. Very pretty, with lots of crushed flowers, cherry and cranberry notes. There some herbs and a faint hit of warm spice here that offers a nice invitation to pair it with roast chicken. 89 Points.
|Luc Delorme rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
The nose of the cool climate Niagara Pinot Noir is a mix of Burgundy-style earthiness with some herbaciousness coming through. The herbaceousness disappears on the palate, leaving way to for a typical old-world, northern Burgundy Pinot Noir. Well-balanced, true to the old-world standard. Drink now or cellar for a few years as well.
