Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 93/100 with the following review:

Superb value here for a mouthwatering Marlborough Pinot Noir. Aromatic nose showing ripe cherry, dark chocolate, baking spice and touch of smoke, then a luscious palate gives layers of cherry, mocha, baking spice and oak. Silky smooth tannins, dry and sensuous.
Tasted May 2016
Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

This had complex nose of smoke and leather. Lots of cherry on the palate. Very smooth and enjoyable. This was a clean sipper with interesting complexity. Medium weight and finish. Tasted December 2016.
Brent Gushowaty rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Eye – Very pale, watery rim

Nose – Vanilla and fresh cherry.

Palate - Simple, dusty/savoury fruit, good balance and acidity. Intensity medium minus. Well made, good length on the finish.

Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Mmmmm! Red cherries, spice, and flinty minerality dominate the nose. The palate is silky smooth with high juicy acidity, mild tannins and a long cranberry spice finish. Enjoy this with hearty fall stews. Tasted Nov 2016 - @sommsosa / bespoketastings.ca
Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Mouthwatering, juicy, ripe red fruit, tart cherry, baking spices, earthiness and flinty minerality. Interesting Complexity, medium-bodied, tart. A great pairing with lamb kabobs , cedar plank salmon, tuna sashimi. Tasted Nov 2016 - rated 89/100 - bespoketastings.ca
