Saison Vineyard Pinot Noir 2020

Very Fruit forward, and about as full a Pinot as you will get. Almost like a California Pinot. Very very impressed, this is a cut above anything else from the Cowichan Valley. On par with any premium Pinot noir from BC. Try it if you find it! — a year ago

Cowichan Valley Pinot Noir Rosé 2017

Wasn’t sure about what to expect. Vancouver Island wines are rather rare off the island. This was a lovely accompaniment to crab & shrimp cakes and scallops. Nice Pinot Noir fruit and acidity. — 5 years ago

Hidden Terrace Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2016

I am drinking this wine from British Columbia, in Tofino on Vancouver Island, looking out over the Pacific Ocean as the sun is setting. An epic moment, if ever there was one. And the wine? Very, very nice, or awesome as the locals say here. — 6 years ago
