To be honest, I am usually not a big fan of Ontario red wines, but this one was quite nice. Smooth, light Pinot Noir that was very very pleasant to drink. Tasted January 2014.

Kirsch-like nose with leathery notes that I don't normally associate with pinot. This wine seems to be maturing rapidly, and is already past its prime. The astringency referred to by John Szabo has not smoothed out, and the finish is thus quite rough. There were some notable successes with pinot in the cool 2011 vintage in Niagara, but for my money, this wasn't one of them.
