Natalie's Score: 90/100

Cranberry juicy on the nose and palate. Could there be a better wine for Thanksgiving turkey? Medium-bodied and smooth with lots of racy acidity. Great value.

Pinot Noir food pairings: traditional clove studded baked ham, split pea soup, roast turkey, grilled salmon.

Terrific Turkey Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Laid back aromas of dusty cherry, leather, and dried herbs. The taste is tart cherry and vanilla, with medium acidity and a little rounded tannins. A great Ontario Merlot for the price, and really, in general.
Andrea rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Absolutely beautiful colour. Pale bright ruby. Light bouquet on the nose - cherry ??, loads of red fruit, watermelon, and some wet forest. Also a small bit of fresh green tobacco and whisper of fungi. In the mouth that light raspberry returns accompanying some bright red berry notes and a hint of cranberry. I usually like PN's with a touch more earth but this is still lovely. Light body and finish medium plus acidity. Overall quite nice for Ontario and an excellent price value. Cheers!
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Sour cherry and cranberry on the nose with a persistence of sour cherry on the palate. Lively acidity with medium body. Pair with charcuterie. Tasted Oct 02, 2016.
Nicole Lewis rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A brilliant garnet Pinot Noir that is offering up aromas of cherry, cranberry and freshly tilled black earth is now on sale for under $15 in time for Thanksgiving! A great value for flavours of sour cherry, cranberry and a soupçon of baking spice in a medium-bodied cloak and food-friendly acidity. It has a medium earthy red berry fruit finish. This wine would pair well with poached salmon or pork tenderloin.
