Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Simply stunning! Aromas of cherry, strawberry, leather, vanilla, dried oregano, and cedar smoke. Medium bodied with smooth tannins, bright acidity, and a wonderful balance of fruit, smoke, spicy and leathery notes. Slightly earthy on the finish. Overall, beautifully balanced, aromatic, and full of flavour. Enjoy with salmon, turkey, chicken or pork.
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Bright ruby cool climate Pinot with well
a complex aromatic profile. Elegant with fantastic mouthwatering acidity. Well structured backbone of elegant slimy tannins with moderate alcohol and fruit concentration. Organic Ontario viticulture. Dark cherry, raspberry, baking spice and a layer of chalky minerality on the palate. Medium - long finish. Tasted the 2015 vintage of "la Grande Reserve" Pinot Noir in April 2018. Pairs well with roasted chicken or turkey, pork tenderloin. 94 points

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.
