If 2013 was procured in a lay, lady lay style, the follow-up 2014 is more of a girl from north country. Not so much...

The nose is abundant tart red berries, maybe a hint of mushroom: bit this is more fruit than earthy.

Firm, higher acid, this is an aggressive Pinot Noir with wonderful flavours of tart cherries, under-ripe cranberry, mixed spices. Long on the finish.

A great example of Ontario Pinot Noir, decidedly fruit-friendly.

Tasted March 2016.

Attractive pale ruby colour. Nose has violets and ripe berries with a bit of dustiness. Light to med bodied, with a seam of minerality and decent complexity. A touch austere yet, so probably better in a year or two. Good, honest Pinot for the price.
