Oak Bay Vineyard 2010 Pinot Noir - 87pts
Availability: Direct from winery here
Date Tasted: September 30th, 2012
Tasting Notes: This tasty Pinot Noir from Kelowna producer Oak Bay Vineyard finds the sweet spot between food-friendly and stand-alone sipper for the budget-conscious Pinot fan. Filled with sweet cherry, stewed raspberry, plum, sea mineral, cedar chip and vanilla bean aromas and flavours with light menthol cigarette notes. Its terroir-driven and red fruit characters rumble around the intense, mouth-watering palate with an authentic rawness; playing ever-so-slightly out-of-sync. An offset melody, but one that works and makes for some great rustic food pairings like BBQ salmon steaks or muscles. Drink 2012-2015.
