Reviews and Ratings

Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Intense aromas of red cherry, strawberry, and raspberry, on the ripe side with some jammy inklings. Breathing releases more red fruit notes definitely on the baked and stewed fruit side. Still showing the violet, rose petal, and rose stem aromas that I have come to expect and love in Icel Vineyard Pinot Noir. French oak baking spice and a mild earthy tone provide a complex backdrop to the fruity and floral bouquet. High acid, definitely ageworthy and food friendly, with gentle tannins and a full body. I am leaning towards seared Ahi tuna steaks or a big and broad board of charcuterie to pair with this Pinot.
Christian Marcoux rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Appealing Pinot Noir from Icellars Estate Winery, located in the Niagara-on-the-Lake, the 2017 vintage exhibits vibrant strawberry, tea and polished tannins. Its aromas are delicious and show great quality wine making. Tasted at Taste Ontario, March 2020.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
