2013 vintage. Obsessed!!! Soo good. One of the best Pinot noirs I've had. Quite light in body but very velvety and smooth. Flavor and depth changes well over time to be yeasty/blue cheesy/savory.

Tasty cherry and spice notes in this light bodied tart little offering from BC. Beautiful acidity gives the finish extra length as it hangs and hangs on the palate.

Amazing colour, nose and taste. Pure Okanagan Pinot Noir with big red fruit and oak all the way. Expression of the terroir was just outstanding.

This was the 2013 vintage (for some reason this program won't let me edit the year). 2013 is the best vintage yet.
