Fort Berens Estate Winery 2012 Pinot Noir (Lillooet) Fraser Canyon - BC

Availability: Direct from the winery here
Cost: $26
Alcohol: 13.5%
Production: 475 cases
Date Tasted: December 29th, 2014

Tasting Notes: Sourced from their home vineyard in Lillooet, this Pinot Noir has a wildness on the nose from alpine berry fruit and raw herbs and spices. Dark raspberry and cherry aromas round out the lightly oaked bouquet. 

The bright, mouth-watering palate follows with a little less pronounced fruit and an increased 
presence of earthy, terroir-influenced flavours. The bone dry finish is a tad bitter but satisfying. Pair with game or a turkey roast. Drink 2015-2017.
