Bonus point because this wine EXCEEDS the expectations created by the professional reviews.
Fresh, perfectly structured, delicious!
The bottle vanished once the tasting started.

Buy a bunch...good luck holding on to them since it drinks wonderfully now!

Outstanding. Very enjoyable. I picked up a bottle while visiting the winery in September 2011. Wish I had of picked up a few more. Tasted October 2012.

This is an outstanding Ontario Pinot Noir that I find is better than many of the imported ones and it has exceeded my expectations. It is full of tastes of berries, with some smokyness and has a reasonably long finish. It is medium-bodied and easy to drink. Goes well with lamb, turkey and brie cheese. Great wine for Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners. Love it a lot. It is rare to find such a nice home-grown wine.

This is drinking beautifully. Nose just explodes from the glass with berries and the best kind of funk. Complex, round and entirely delicious. Plenty of life yet.

This excellent pale ruby coloured Pinot Noir County opened up with aromas of cranberry, plum, strawberry, cinnamon, spicy and mineral notes. On the mouthfeel, light bodied with alcohol coming in at 11.9%, youthful, fresh with bright acidity and light tannins. Very good length on the finish with spicy red fruit flavours and great energy. Great balance with this Pinot, love the low alcohol and ripe red fruit flavours, strongly recommended for fans of lighter Pinot Noir.
