Natalie's Score: 92/100

A flavourful Pinot Noir with consistent high quality year after year. Look for bright cherry, cranberry, sweet baking and pepper spice flavours harmoniously balanced with good acidity for food. Tannins are velvety. Easy to love. Drink or hold. Pair with lamb kebabs from the grill.

Pinot Noir food pairings: roast leg of lamb, sautéed pork chops with wild mushrooms, butternut squash and onion risotto.

Reviews and Ratings

Bernard rated this wine as 91/100
Westcott Estate 2017 Pinot Noir is a rich and full-bodied Niagara PN that has been almost two years in French oak barrels. The result is a rich, full-bodied smooth Pinot with dark cherry, earth florals, mushroom and well-integrated oak spice flavours harmonious and balanced with food-friendly acidity. Pair with a veal Porterhouse. Drink or hold. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
