A superb, elegant, medium-bodied BC Pinot Noir with grapes sourced from the winery's Devonshire Vineyard. The vines are 28 years old and planted on the Naramata Bench. Aromas of black cherry and smoke. Perfect for grilled chicken.

|Lynn Van Der Linde - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:|
Such a complex wine - so much going on! Don't hesitate to pick this one up, worth the extra dollars.
Black cherries, leather, licorice, with hints of smoke and peat. Zippy cherry mouth, with a lingering baking spice on the palate.
Tasted July 2018.
|Brent Gushowaty rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
The wine is pale with a garnet rim. On the nose it shows notes of pomegranate molasses, strawberry and dark cherry. The palate follows the nose with cherry, strawberry and loganberry red fruit strands along with some forest and earthy notes. It has an excellent balance, is smooth textured, fairly long and the harmonious flavours persist well into the finish before they pleasantly trail off. The best days are still ahead here though as many elements are still assembling and will likely reveal themselves in the next three to ten years. The source for the grapes here is the Devonshire Vineyard in Naramata. 101 cases produced.
The Privato Winery and Vineyard is located in B.C.s Thompson Valley GI. The new (July 2018) Thompson Valley GI (GI stands for Geographical Indications - B.C.'s appellation) roughly follows the outline of the Thompson Basin and includes the communities of Kamloops, Cache Creek and Ashcroft. A semi-arid region, the Thompson Valley has hot, dry summers and cold winters. The constant movement of the North and South Thompson Rivers creates air flow to help moderate temperatures.
