Thornhaven 2006 Barrel Reserve Pinot Noir - 87 pts

Thornhaven 2006 Barrel Reserve Pinot Noir (Okanagan Valley) Canada

Date: August 11th, 2009

Decanted: 1 hr

Cost: $17.90 (VQA Stores)

Tasting Notes: One of the best Pinot Noir bargains (under $20) that BC has to offer. Beautiful pinot colour: slightly rustic-red and transparent. Lovely aroma of white pepper and forest floor. On the palate this light-bodied pinot offers spices, more pepper and red fruit. The tannins are mild and the finish is elegant. A very nice wine for the price.

I paired this wine with an old favourite indie-rock band of mine; The Poster Children. An old-school pinot sipper with old-school alt-rockers. - LC
