A rich, very full-bodied BC Pinot Noir with the heft of a Syrah and the velvet texture and luxurious mouth-feel. Aromas of fleshy black plum and dark cherry. Smooth, supple and delicious.

Reviews and Ratings

Deborah Podurgiel WSET IV Candidate - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

NWAC14 Silver Medal Winner, Privato Winery's 2011 Pinot Noir is fresh berry fruit on the nose with hints of cinnamon and nutmeg layered on dark chocolate. On the palate, the wine is silky, with fresh strawberry, raspberry and plummy fruit, exhibiting rounded and smooth tannins -- a real pleasure to drink. Excellent on its own; with a rich and creamy blue, roast veal or spring lamb!
Courtney Flood rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A very concentrated pinot noir. Rich flavours of blueberry, blackberry, cherry, plum, mint, and black pepper. This wine is very rich, almost liquer-like in the mouth. Definitely a wine for pairing with lamb.
Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Rich cherry and raspberry aromas with plenty of baking spices and a bit of dried herbs. Bright acidity accents the fruits from the aromas and gives a wonderfully silky mouth feel. The finish is long and filled with tart cherry with some fine tannins.

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.
