Reserve Pinot Noir, BC VQA

$25.99

Our Reserve Pinot Noir is a classic – the perfect combination of Old World style with New World finesse. Ripe raspberry and Rainer cherry on the nose evolve to complex flavours of spice, wild strawberries, and black cherry. A subtle hint of French oak reflects its nine months of barrel aging.

 

Description

Vintage Report

Vintage 2013 was a season of change – early to start, late to finish, and with exceptional f lavour potential. A warmer than normal spring brought early budbreak followed by an extremely rainy June that slowed vine growth. Balance was restored with above average temperatures in July and August allowing grapes to mature along a normal ripening curve. The warmest vintage since 2003 cooled off just in time for harvest. In September, heavy rainfall caused significant delays in the grape harvest resulting in our longest picking season ever. Overall, fruit quality was superb for both red and white varietals and the wines are showing excellent balance and character.

 

Tasting Notes

A rich and seductive Pinot Noir with eticing aromas of raspberry, black cherry and Asian spices. The suave palate is bursting with wild berry fruit and is enhanced by further notes of cola, mineral and a subtle hint of French oak.
