Availability: October 2nd, 2009 (Available for online orders now)

Cost: $29.90 (Direct from winery)

Date Tasted: September 22nd, 2009

Tasting Notes: On the heels of the Lieutenant Governor's Award of Excellence winning 2006 vintage comes this lovely Pinot Noir from Naramata producer Howling Bluff. Youthful aromas of coffee, chocolate and orange peel with flavours of cherries and berries on the palate. Smooth tannins pair well with subtle yet present acidity to form a very well balanced wine.

As an aside, the new labeling is a major step forward in elegance for this wine. It doesn't affect the taste, obviously, but it does influence the overall presentation of this fine Pinot Noir, especially for collectors. - LC
