From the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Quails' Gate Stewart Family 2018 Pinot Noir is fragrant with ripe cherry, earthy and spicy aromas on the nose; dry, medium-bodied with beautifully-balanced acidity to fruit showing ripe dark cherry, red berry, blueberry, earthy, savoury and spicy flavours so silky and elegant on the palate. Drink or hold.

Reviews and Ratings

Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Stunning wine!! Aromas of red cherry, cranberry, violets, and a touch of strawberry jam, along with hints of graphite, leather and smoke. Medium bodied with light, drying tannins, and vibrant acidity. Red berry hints are vibrant on the palate along with some floral and smoky hints, and a lengthy finish. Enjoy with pan seared duck breast or any muchroom dishes.
Love Quails' Gate Stewart Family Reserve 2018 Pinot Noir. Fragrant with ripe cherry, earthy and spicy aromas on the nose; medium-bodied and vibrant with ripe red berry, dark cherry, blue florals, softly spiced with smoky nuances and a long finish. Good now, better in 2022. Pour with a grilled rack of lamb. - Community Wine Reviews

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.
