Natalie's Score: 92/100

A spicy, medium-plus-bodied Pinot Noir from Niagara aged in French oak barrel for nearly two years. Look for tart cherry, mocha and herbal notes with sweet spice and dark chocolate flavours on the palate. The wine underwent a 30% wild ferment yeast with whole cluster grapes then malolactic fermentation in French oak barrels. Pair with veal chops.

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