Natalie's Score: 93/100
A gorgeous, luscious, organic Niagara red wine made from the seductive Pinot Noir grape, of which 40% was whole cluster pressed and hand harvested. Glinting ruby gems in the glass. Medium-bodied, supple and smooth with aromas ripe dark cherry, fresh-turned earth and some spice. Long, satisfying finish. Pair with veal cutlets or roast turkey or chicken.

On the nose: Strawberry, raspberry, red cherry, cedar box, roses,

A fun and easy going wine. Nice red fruit and spices. Well balanced with the right amount of acid and tannin. Drinks well with an arugula salad.
|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
dried fig and hickory smoke, ripe cherry and black pepper. Mint and tarragon. Pair with your thanksgiving or Christmas bird and stuffing. Or with some dark chocolate for an after-dinner treat.
|Wineboy rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
A beautiful Niagara PN which is evolving a little ahead of it's time. It shows serious levels of cherry/ stewed cherry flavours. Softer acids from the warm 16 vintage. Great length and a touch more alcohol than sometimes seen with PN. Drink now to 2020.
|Andrea Shapiro - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Interesting! This is very good - tasted different than was apparent on the nose. Smoky strawberries and earth with red fruit flavours of pomegranate, raspberry, and light red plums. Acidity is medium and well balanced with the light body and medium minus finish echoing with raspberry leaves at the back. - pair with smoked meats and pate. 90 points - tasted November 2018

fresh, raspberry aromas on the nose. Good acidity and a bit rustic texture on the tongue. May need few hours to open up but good balance

Distinctive nose. Ripe raspberry and cherry. Vanilla, smoke, compost, coffee.
Cherry candy and strawberry rhubarb pie on the palate. Would be interesting paired with turkey dinner with plenty of gravy, cranberry sauce and a fatoush salad made with pomegranate molasses.
