LCBO Note Status
TASTING NOTE: The high percentage of pinot noir shines with plenty of white cherry and a hint of strawberry on the nose. Cherry dominates from the first sip, through mid-palate, and lingers on a medium to long finish. A decidedly versatile food wine, I paired it with fresh jalapeno-laced salsa and rice and bean burritos but it will match equally well with a simple roast chicken and ratatouille with fresh herbs. There's just enough sweetness to balance slightly acidic foods and can stand up to a bit of spicy heat. Score - 90 (Michael Lowe, winesinniagara.com, March 29, 2017) Price $ 17.95
