Reviews and Ratings

Douglas McMillan rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Medium ruby with a spicy ripe strawberry aroma with a little earthiness and new leather as well. The taste is strawberry an raspberry with bright acidity and medium plus grippy tannins. Great structure for a Pinot. For me, this would pair well with tender spice rubbed pork dishes, or medium cheeses.
Pamela Chiles rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

A nicely structured Pinot balancing cranberry-raspberry, roasted beet and a hint of menthol aromas and flavours with fine tannins and mouthwatering acidity. A bit short on the finish, but quite quaffable. Grill a pork tenderloin and roast some squash.
Cherie Cole rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

Contains the right body and acidity of a Pinot Noir. The aromas and flavours were subtle with cherry, forest floor and herbaceous notes. Short finish. Pair with light salads topped with grilled salmon. Tasted Oct 02, 2016.
Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 78/100 with the following review:

A Pinot Noir that requires more acidic foods to show off its best parts…
Presentation: Rustic, fall tones, simple, clean
Appearance: Clear, pale, ruby to garnet
Nose: Clean, light nose with notes of cherries, plums, and a hint of herbaceous (maybe eucalyptus)
Taste: Dry, light body, medium acidity, medium tannins, cherries, leather, earth notes
Finish: Short, had some green notes to it but fell flat
Overall impression: An acceptable Pinot Noir, though we were unfortunately underwhelmed at the end. This should pair well with lighter meats/fare and perhaps something on the saltier side.
Value: 2/5
