Burrowing Owl Estate Winery 2014 Pinot Noir (Black Sage Bench) Okanagan Valley - BC
Availability: Direct from winery here
Cost: $30 (including taxes)
Date Tasted: October 13th, 2016
Tasting Notes: A full-bodied and uber-ripe Pinot Noir, more reminiscent of Central Coast California than its cool-climate brethren from Central Okanagan Valley. Look for intense, red fruit on the perfumed nose and the generous palate with layers of toasted oak, mocha, cured meat, cedar and white pepper adding complexity and depth. Alcohol is better managed in this vintage, though, at 14% we're still in the glycerol-enhanced, creamy-smooth mouthfeel zone. The finish is long and spicy with a touch of tangy rhubarb lingering. Drink 2017-2019.
