Melissa Pulvermacher reviewed this wine as follows:

Drinking incredibly well right now (2016). Extremely pleased with the backbone, acidity and overall complexity of this wine. This firm, but round wine had me salivating over the acidity and fresh cherry fruit showcased especially on the finish. This wine will continue to drink at its peak over the next year.
Bob Citren rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Natalie's Score: 92/100
A luscious and layered Niagara Pinot Noir from the warm and spectacular 2010 vintage. Layers of fleshy ripe black cherry and raspberry with terrific balancing and racy acidity for so many dishes, from roast chicken and turkey to planked salmon and pork chops.

Pinot Noir food pairings: smoked salmon, grilled pork chops, coq au vin, beef bourguignon.

Jessica Nagy rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

This wine is made from hand-picked grapes that come from only the top-tier, south facing vines on the Henry of Pelham vineyard, and only in exceptional years. The 2007 Pinot Noir is a bright garnet red, smelling of cherries and currants, supported by earthy, vanilla oak aromas. It's age is starting to show only slightly as the acids are still very present with luscious tannins. This is a wine that needs food to be really appreciated and it paired extremely well with a creamy risotto served with a red wine butter sauce.

Natalie's Review

Henry of Pelham Winery Henry of Pelham Pinot Noir, Speck Family Reserve 2007, Short Hills Bench, Canada: Deep, rich and concentrated. Reminds of the power of Pommard, Burgundy, with all its elegance gathered at the center. Black cherry and bright field berries. Velvet smooth texture with a medium-body and a smoky-earth finish. Oh-la-la! 657874 13.50% D 750 mL  $40.00 Score: 92/100. December 1, 2009  Full Review

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty 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.
