|TASTING NOTE: The short note on this wine is that it's the new benchmark for value Pinot Noir in the province. Everything in this wine is just harmonious from ripe fruit and earth to nice acidity on the finish. The aromas offer ripe cherry with some violet that tries to poke through some of the fruit. On the palate this opens up with nice weight and texture - the floral note from the nose moves to centre stage and is joined with a subtle vanilla note. A damp earthy note starts to make an appearance on the finish but before it can take attention away from the fruit and flowers it is met with nice acidity. The tannin is smooth and this wine is dangerously easy to drink. There is some cellaring potential here if you have more patience or restraint than I, you can keep some bottles around for 3-6 years. Score - 4.5 Stars (out of 5) (André Proulx, andrewinereview.ca, Jan. 25, 2018)
