Tasting Notes: True to the house style
, this is a lively, focused, light-garnet Pinot Noir with terroir-driven characters of forest floor, brambly berries and minerals supported by raspberry-cola aromas on the full, spicy-plum nose and effervescent red fruit on the mouth-watering, yet, well balanced and well structured, light-bodied palate. 

This is Blue Mountain's entry-level Pinot Noir that, along with its equally well-priced entry-level Chardonnay cousin, tastes like a wine produced by a winery most famous for its traditional method sparkling wines. Agressive, cool-climate Pinot Noir, to be sure, and well worth the price of admission. Drink now-2018.
