JoieFarm 2012 "En Famille" Reserve Pinot Noir (Naramata Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC

: Direct from winery here 
Cost: $39.90
Alcohol: 14%
Production: 215 cases
Date Tasted: August 31st, 2015

Tasting Notes: Produced from a blend of Pinot Noir fruit sourced from vineyards in Summerland and the Skaha and Naramata benches. 
This reserve wine spends 8 months in Burgundian oak prior to bottling and then a further 18 months in bottle prior to release preserving the wine's fresh, vibrant red fruit characters while allowing the earthy notes and tannins to integrate beautifully. 

Opens with a maturing nose of sweet herbs, black cherry, raspberry seeds, cassis and light, spicy oak. The palate has plenty of vibrant texture and medium-plus body with a strong fruit component and fine tannins. The finish is spicy and mouth-watering with lingering, savoury earth and tingling raspberry notes.

Sealed with natural cork enclosure, this Pinot is likely to develop through 2018 and beyond. Drink 2015-2018+.
