Tasting Notes: Lovers of new world Pinot Noir should not rush out to purchase this wine as the ultimate representation of what can be accomplished with this hardest of grapes to produce. However, for the price it is a fine Pinot Noir that will pair nicely with light game, mild fruits and can be enjoyed on its own.
This light ruby/purple wine has a nose of sweet berries and plums. On the pallet this easy-drinking pinot offers fine white pepper, more berry flavours and subtle tannis. This is a very approachable pinot that could be used to introduce non-pinot drinkers to this wondrous grape; winemaker Corey Beck should be proud. - LC
