The Tawse Winery Inc. Grower’s Blend Pinot Noir 2010 is a great tasting red wine. Features cherry, red berry and earthy aromas and flavours. Tasted October 7, 2013 (90/100)
Neil Phillips rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Nose of strawberry, allspice, Christmas cake.

Medium weight for a Pinot on the palate.

Elegant and well balanced.

Good value.
The 2010 vintage was hot and long, resulting in great ripeness in the vineyard. This translated into concentration, depth and complexity in the wine. The Growers Blend is a combination of multiple vineyards, and is a wonderful reflection of the vineyard. The nose is a potent blend of ripe fruit, blooming flowers, and earthy notes. The palate is filled with black raspberry and ripe cherry, violets, tomato leaf and brown mushroom. These flavors linger for a long delicious finish.
