The 2011 Flat Rock Cellars Gravity Pinot Noir that was aged in French Oak for 18 months has intense aromas of raspberry, toast and subtle wood + vanilla. It is a light to medium bodied, extra-dry, integrated wine, with checked acidity, refined tannins and a long finish. It is food friendly or sip on its own; drink now – 2018+. My impression: NICE to BEAUTIFUL, 89-90 pts. Tasted at 'Taste Ontario 2013' http://grapeselections.com/taste-ontario-2013/ in October/13.
