Reviews and Ratings

Thomas Bachelder is one of the most respected winemakers in Canada. This is a spectacular Pinot Noir from a great year. Seductive fleshy cherry and cranberry with spice on the nose and palate of this ethereal Ontario Pinot Noir. Pair with veal and game dishes. OTHER: Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review: Garnet with a watery rim and ruby hue. This is a gorgeous Niagara Pinot. Cherry cola, dusty minerality, baking spices and a hint of cranberry. Tangy, tart with mouth-watering acidity. Complex layers on the palate. Medium finish with persistence of cherry cola. Balanced and integrating well. Tasted 2015 vintage in April 2018. Decanted 1h. 92 points. OTHER: Kelly Mason's 2016 pinot noir offers up a truly sensory experience, from fruit picked "crazy early" out of two vineyards, La Colline and Mountainview. These co-conspiratorial tracts have by now become infamous contributions to a wine that's always on the cusp of greatness. It was September 14th and 15th to be precise, after what Mason describes as a several day vineyard walk and taste with her inner voice saying "I've got to get this in." And so it's the one, a 2016 pinot noir of power and elegance. A vintage, a winemaker and two plots of vines that fell into grippy comfort together. You need to taste this. Drink: 2020-2026. Score - 92 (Michael Godel, winealign.com, April 23, 2019). - Community Wine Reviews
