Church and State Wines 2007 Pinot Noir - 89pts

Church and State Wines 2007 Pinot Noir (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from winery here
Cost: $25.90
Alcohol: 13.8%
Date Tasted: January 12th, 2010

Tasting Notes: Fans of Stoneboat's excellent middleweight Pinot Noir should consider trying this delicious, elegant and balanced example from Church and State (and vice versa). Medium garnet in colour, this Pinot offers superb concentration of raspberry, cherry, savoury spice and earth note characters on the sublime nose and silky palate. Fully dry, yet veins of sweet fruit linger with spice on the long and refined finish.

Produced from grapes grown at the Hollenbach Family Vineyard which overlooks Skaha Lake. Enjoy with your usual Pinot-friendly game or try a classic BC combination of BBQ Pacific Salmon. Drink 2011-2014.
