Seresin's Momo, a solid label generally, is certainly a step up in quality from the usual Pinot in this price range. With characteristic cherry, beet, and earth, this is nicely savoury, sweet (too much candied fruit in second bottle), and tart, and nicely balanced and structured, dry and crisp, but there is a also good deal of flavour complexity with the addition of raspberry, strawberry, redcurrant, black pepper, marshmallow, and herbs. In fact, this has more of an "old school" Burgundian feel to it than most "value" Pinot, much to its credit. At this price, for this value, it's hard to beat.
I'm a fan of Seresin in general, but this offering didn't bowl me over. An attractive enough cranberry-floral nose, but on the palate, I found it very tart and puckery. There are better pinots available at the same or lower price points, even from Ontario (e.g., the 2013 Flat Rock, which has been going for $17.95 lately).
