Love this BC Pinot Noir that almost jumps from the glass with a profusion of red florals, dark fleshy ripe cherry and smoke. Liquid satin on the tongue. Pair with grilled or roasted chicken.

Layers and layers of flavours! Ripe red cherry and baking spices on the nose, that follow through to a spicy finish.
Lovely paired with turkey dinner or pork tenderloin.
Tasted July 2018.

The Vineyard of owners John and Debbie Woodward is often referred to as “a little piece of heaven". When I tasted this wine I thought I had gone to heaven myself! What a gorgeous BC Pinot!
So much complexity; aromas of sour cherry, beetroot, smoke, leather and vanilla. All evolving as it spends time in the glass. Sweet cherry and strawberry flavours. There is the perfect balance of smooth tannins and fresh acidity. Long velvety finish that leaves you wanting more!
Pair with a romantic date by the fireplace!!

The wine is pale with a fresh cherry coloured rim. On the nose there was a touch of dark plum, cherry, cumin and you could detect a fresh acidity. On the palate it is very well balanced with savoury cherry, pomegranate and other darkish or ripe red fruits. The finish here as you might expect is a little longer and more persistent than their more modest Privato Collection bottling. As with all Privato wines, it possesses an excellent balancing acidity, savoury fruit with some earthiness, excellent structure and a soft, silky mouthfeel.
“Tesoro” means treasure in Italian. The grapes here were sourced from Lake Country in the Okanagan Valley GI. This wine is aged for 18 months in French oak and then an additional year in the bottle. The winemaker is John Woodward.
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.
