This is a good pinot from Ontario for a good price. The nose shows some sweet spice from barrels, mocha and vanilla...

Reductive, rubbery, oaky and slightly under ripe, it's fair to say that this is not showing well at the moment....

A classic pinot noir nose... no way anybody can deny that. Cherry/cola earth/ mushroom/ raspberry. The wine is well made however the fruit could be richer as the body is really light and thin. Overall a great Ontario pinot at a low price. A 3 Star pinot!

An enjoyable wine that begins with a nose of berries and secondary, earthy characteristics typical of pinot. In the mouth, the wine is soft and medium bodied, but lacking complexity. A bit linear, but could do worse for the price. Tasted July 2011.
