Natalie's Score: 90/100

A mocha-rich, medium-bodied, smooth Niagara red wine made from the classic Pinot Noir grape. Lots of ripe fruit on this vintage. Sweet black plum aromas on the nose with dark chocolate and cedar spice. Fleshy ripe cherry aromas and flavours on the palate of this mouth-watering Pinot Noir. Could also cellar for a few years. Very respected winemaker. Pair with roast chicken.

Pinot Noir food pairings: grilled lamb sirloin with cocoa rub, veal chops, grilled duck sausages, grilled pork tenderloin with cauliflower purée and cherry compote.

Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Made from hand-harvested grapes, thus giving purer flavours. Tart cherry and forest floor aromatics, with flavours evolving from those to a palate that includes slight spice and milk chocolate. Food friendly acidity.
Tasted April 2017
