A ripe, sweet fruited nose with raspberry and cherry jam and slight cola notes. The palate is rich and full in style with almost sweet black cherry fruit, oak and spice.

Wine Writer’s Comment: A great Pinot that has some oomph to it! Aged 15 months in second-use French oak barrels on the lees, the wine is unfined and unfiltered, carrying plenty of character from that lees contact. A solid wine that will work for those who think Pinot Noirs are sometimes a little too wimpy, and also others who think they’re occasionally too extracted or sweet. The natural acidity provided by the Northern proximity of the Okanagan growing region makes for a fine balance, and a wine that also manages to straddle that line between Old World earthy, terroir-driven character, and the fruit forward power of a New World take on the grape. This will be a crowd pleaser for any impromptu get-togethers!
