Natalie's Score: 92/100

A robust, luxurious BC Pinot Noir. It needs some cellar time to come together, but when it does: watch out! Luscious layers of black cherry and spice. Great mouth-watering acidity for seared tuna, roast chicken and planked salmon.

Pinot Noir food pairings: duck confit, coq au vin, beef bourguignon.

Delightful Duck Wine

Reviews and Ratings

Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby coloured with delicate purple reflections. Aromas - Bright bursting yet restrained red fruit. Cherries and strawberries. There’s a certain touch of autumn scaped forest floor. Enjoyable rust and soft spicy touches of cedar. Acidity is high but well restrained allowing the fruit to peek through with light plum, raspberries, earthy beets. There’s also an unveiling appearance of dark fruit, primarily blackberries with restrained tannins and a light gentle bodied finish. This would be suitably paired with lean herbed venison steak and wild fowl or something delicate and herbaceous like herbed cheeses and rainbow trout. 91 points - tasted April 2018

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty 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.
