Tasting Notes: From the cellar. Sometimes it pays to splurge a bit more for an experience you won't soon forget. Yes, it's Canada's most expensive Pinot Noir, but is it Canada's best? There's an argument for 'yes' with its sublime nose of cherry, plum, pepper, cinnamon and popcorn kernel aromas and with its memorable, well balanced and fine tannin filled palate of kirsch, cherry and magic marker flavours. Of course, you'll decide for yourself if it is or isn't "the best" and either 'yah' or 'nay' you'll enjoy the debate. Still youthful after 5 years with easily another 5 to go, if not more. Drink 2013-2020.
