The 2012 Keint-He Voyageur Pinot Noir, sourced from three Niagara vineyards and aged in French oak for 10 months, has pleasing aromas of blackberry, plum and pomegranate. It is a medium bodied, extra-dry, fruity wine; BALANCED with good, refreshing acidity, drying tannins and a medium to long finish. Drink with food or on-its-own; drink now 2018+ (cork enclosure). My impression: BEAUTIFUL, 90 pts – recommended for its quality and value. Tasted at 'County in the City' event http://grapeselections.com/county-in-the-city-2014/ in Apr/14.

A lovely wine with great value. A touch of barnyard on the nose with cranberry, bramble-berry and earth. Flavours of root beer, red cherry, raspberry and subtle spice from it's time in French oak. Medium bodied and dry the tannins are subtle and drying. The finish is medium. A steal at this price. Tasted April 2014 at County in the City and Vintages April 26 release.

Drink now or in the next 5 years on its own or pair it with Garlic Roasted Pork Loin with Raspberry Chipotle Glaze.

Medium intensity nose with aromas of dark cherry, blackberry and oak spice. It's medium-bodied with firm tannins. Flavour profile consists of dark fruits and black cherry. Has mouth-watering acids and a lengthy finish. Enjoyable now, but better to hold 1 year and enjoy until 2018. Tasted Apr/2014.

A 'deeper' Pinot Noir compared to a Flat Rock or Norman Hardie, closer to a California pinot.
