Thornhaven Estates Winery 2008 Pinot Noir - 86pts

Thornhaven Estates Winery 2008 Pinot Noir (Summerland) Okanagan Valley - BC

Availability: Direct from winery here and VQA stores
Cost: $18.90
Alcohol: 12.4%
Date Tasted: August 26th, 2011

Tasting Notes: Good alcohol level management keeps this cool climate, budget Pinot tasting fresh and fairly light-bodied with raspberry seed, savoury spice and oak flavours on tap. A welcomed alternative to the expensive, higher alcohol, flashy Pinots that are on offer from other BC wineries. That said, you won't find great elegance or complexity with this wine but rather, a focused, food-friendly offering excellent value for money. Drink 2011-2013.
