Reviews and Ratings

Karen Mitchell rated this wine as 100/100 with the following review:

Pale ruby in colour, aromas of cherry , plum , earth, cigar box and spice. Tastes of roasted beet chips . Medium body, dry, extremely pleasant, moderate finish , well worth the extra price tag. Will definitely repurchase.
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This is such a beautiful Pinot Noir from the Beamsville Bench in Ontario. Aromas of red cherry and raspberry with notes of smoke, and warm, woody spices. Medium bodied on the palate, with vibrant, mouthwatering acidity, and light tannins adding just enough dimension. On the palate the notes of cherry are vibrant with just a hint of tartness, and there is a lengthy finish with warm spice and smoky notes. Enjoy this wine on its own in front of a fire, or paired with pan-seared duck breast.
