A supple, full-bodied, mocha-rich BC Pinot Noir. Suprisingly high alcohol at 14.4% but the wine is balanced. Aromas of dark chocolate, blackberry and black plum. Pair with grilled pork chops.

Reviews and Ratings

Gwen Barton rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A big 100% Pinot Noir from BC’s Similkameen Valley. Dark black fruit forward aromas with definite earthy and sweet spice secondary nose. Dark cherry and blackberry flavours come through in the mouth with Smokey undertones. Drinkable- but could probably benefit with a bit of cellaring. Tannins are balanced nicely with generous acidity resulting in a nice, smooth finish At $21? Great value! Pair with blue cheese stuffed mushrooms. Tasted: July 2017
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

I'm always on the hunt for a good value Pinot Noir and this one fits the bill. If you want it though you will have to order directly from the winery in BC as the LCBO currently does not carry it.

Mt. Boucherie owns some of the oldest vineyards in BC, including the one in the Similkameen Valley that this Pinot hails from. Winemaker Jim Faulkner has been with them since 2009 and he also does double duty as winemaker at nearby Rust Wine Co. During that time he has raised the bar when it comes to quality and is continuing to work on elevating them to an even higher level.

Beautiful bouquet with notes of rhubarb, beet, cherry and typical Pinot earthiness. Smooth tannins and soft acidity with flavours of ripe black cherry and raspberry. A nicely balanced wine with some good complexity for the price. Medium body with a medium-long fruit finish. Pair with roast pork rubbed with savoury herbs. Tasted July 26, 2018.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Lovely and balanced! Aromas of dark ripe cherry, raspberry, cedar, warm earth and smoky spice. Full bodied, warm from alcohol on the palate but nicely balanced with fruit, earth, and smoke. Bright acidity and a lengthy finish. Enjoy with grilled salmon or pork tenderloin.
