A stunning, benchmark Niagara Pinot Noir from the master of the genre, Thomas Bachelder. Aromas of ripe cherry and freshly turned earth. Medium-bodied with a silken texture. Perfect to pair with itself or roast chicken.

Pinot Noir food pairings: pork roast, duck confit, braised beef prime ribs.

Reviews and Ratings

Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A pale garnet Pinot Noir from Niagara, there are aromas of red berries-cranberry and strawberry. A medium balance of acidity and tannins, cherries appear on the palate too and the finish is medium and dry. This is a wine to be considered for turkey or roasted poultry, and a soft to medium cheese plate.
Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The nose is absolutely charmaing with its hints of red cherries and sweet spices. It's a fruity wine with a certain body but very refrehing at the same time. I would cellar it for a couple of years to add to its complexity.But rigth now it's super nice,like having a pearl on the tongue.It would pair well with duck confit or the famous Thanksgiving turkey.
