Dan Trcka Wine Blogger rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The 2010 Tawse Grower’s Blend Pinot Noir has intense, lifted aromas of prune, pomegranate and vanilla. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine, with good acidity, refined tannins and a medium to long finish. It is food friendly, but enjoy it on its own; drink now – 2018+. My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 91 pts – recommended buy for its quality and value. Tasted at 'Taste Ontario 2013' http://grapeselections.com/taste-ontario-2013/ in October/13.

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

This juicy pinot has got some body to it! Cherries and raspberries mingle with dark chocolate and herbs, all tied together with a mouth-watering acidity. Finishes long and dry subtly spicy.
Heather Wall rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Brilliant colour and richness from this award winning winery. Medium+ body and a good expression cool climate Pinot. Hint of caramel surprised my palate first. Ripe cherry, prunes, sweet spice and chocolate follow-up. Smooth and sure to please any wine lover.

Natalie's Review

Tawse Winery Inc. Growers Blend Pinot Noir 2010, V.Q.A., Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada: Medium-bodied, silky with mocha and spice. Tart, sour cherry aromas and flavours on this medium-bodied, mouth-watering acidic Pinot Noir from Niagara. Very respected winemaker. Pair with salmon or tuna. Lovely craftsmanship.

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.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
