Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

I am howling praises for Howling Bluff Estate Winery’s Three-Mile Creek 2015 Pinot Noir (sorry, couldn’t resist), but this is a darn-good Pinot Noir. Perfumed with fresh violets, dark cherries, sultry mineral, dried raspberry fruit and orange zest aromas on the nose. Crushed raspberry, soft red plum, soft vanilla finishing incredibly long with baking spice, citrus zest and mineral flavours mouth-coating from mid- to back of palate. Great depth. Tannins are fine-grained and silky. Wonderful with pan-fried veal chops smothered in a red wine and wild mushroom sauce, but better hurry with dinner because this PN is way too easy to drink and poof, it will be gone before dinner. Aged for 12 months in 30% new, 35% second-fill and 35% third-fill French oak barrels. Bottled unfiltered. Tasted September 2019.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Beautiful BC Pinot Noir from the Naramata Bench. Aromas of cherry, ripe strawberry, earth, leather, and spice. Medium bodied, medium + acidity, and a lengthy finish. Really tasty and versatile, enjoy with pork tenderloin, grilled veggies, or beef tartare.
