A very enjoyable expression of Niagara pinot noir coming together nicely right now. With some sweet spicy, smoky...

Quite nice in the glass: earthy, pale and light, with lots of vibrant red cherry, mineral, and something minty. The aromas give way to a richer sensation of liquorice and darker berries. There's an acidic bite to it, but so nicely balanced with lots of fruit and very little tannin that it ends in a long, almost smooth finish. Lovely. The real pleasure of this wine is the balance it strikes between delicate and plush.

Flint, red cherries and slight earthiness on the nose. Lovely evolving layers of fruit on the finish.

Heavy, smoky, smelly feet. Typical of Ontario Pinot Noirs. Good price, but not enjoyable on its own.
