TASTING NOTE: Now a pure pinot noir, Hidden Bench's 2016 Locust Lane rosé is a crystalline, bone dry, sophisticated wine, very classy and complex, blended from the estate's three vineyards. There's genuine density and concentration, fruit of low yielding vines, saliva-inducing acids and an appealing saltiness, not to mention excellent length. I say, this latest release is among Canada's top pinks. Tasted April 2017. Score - 91 (John Szabo, MS, winealign.com, April 17, 2017) Price $ 21.95
