Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby but with the aromas of a much darker wine. Black cherry, India ink, and minerality. The flavour follows the aromas, and adds a hint of candied grape. Medium rounded tannins and medium acidity. Very well balanced, and a great value.
Jacky Blisson rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby colour. Attractive, ripe red cherry, dark cherry and baking spice notes on the nose. Very fresh and lovely, with a broad, rounded mid-palate, good fruit concentration and plush tannins. Lightly oaked.
Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

The robe of the wine is an elegant medium ruby with a clear rim. The aromas are akin those of a Black Forest cake (minus the whipped cream) -- with layers of ripe bing cherries, macerated black cherries, and cocoa. Excellent acidity, soft tannins, with a dominant cherry palate and a white pepper bite at the end. Score 90. (S.Segard, Reviewed March 27, 2017)
Cora Beaulieu rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This Pinot Noir is a medium bright red/brown color. Its nose boasts lots of aromas of fruit, cherry, black raspberries, violets, toffee, cinnamon, anise and a slight funky note on the nose. Nicely balanced, light-bodied profile. Firm tannins and light oak with vibrant acidity. The palate packs initial flavors of strawberry, cherry, raspberry and in the following with Earl Grey, and thyme notes. Medium length finish of berries. It will complement grilled salmon, lamb and mushrooms. [Tasted Mar/2017]
Stephen Andrews reviewed this wine as follows:

Tasted Jan 9th, 2018. Colour medium ruby red, what I call tail light red. Legs medium minus suggest 13% alcohol. Aromas and flavours of, cherry, raspberry, cola and rose. Taste dry, fruity, medium body, with very little tannin. Mouthwatering plus. Finishes medium plus all along the palate and down the throat.
I like this wine because it has mouthwatering red fruit flavour soft soft tannin and a great finish. Good value. Highly recommend. I would pair it with roast chicken. I also ate turkey meatloaf as I enjoyed drinking this wine.
