Tasting Notes
Intense nose of dried fruit, ripe red cherry, raspberry, and ripe black figs. Delicious flavours of dried fruit, brandied plums and baking spices follow through with great balance and silky smooth tannins, all with a long, elegant finish.

Winemaking Notes
The grapes were hand harvested and sorted with 20% of the grapes being dried in the appassimento style. The wine was aged for 20 months on lees in select oak barrels before bottling and further bottle aging in the winery's cellar.

Enjoy now or cellar to 2022.

Wine and Food Pairing
A perfect wine to enjoy on its own or pair with roasted turkey with fresh shiitake and crimini mushrooms and dried porcini mushroom stuffing, roast chicken and vegetables, duck confit, cedar plank salmon, mushroom risotto, stuffed pork tenderloin, and rack of lamb. Also is a perfect accompaniment with hard and soft cheese and a charcuterie platter.

Awards and Accolades
91 Points – Pinot Noir 2013
“20% of the Pinot for this wine was dried for the final blend, which then spent 20 months in French oak. It’s not like other Niagara Pinot Noirs and does not pretend to be. It’s a bolder, riper version that gets its complexity from the appassimento method of winemaking that is this winery’s signature. Once you understand that, you can appreciate this lovely bolder style wine with its nose of spicy red fruits, cloves, nutmeg, plums, bramble and cassis fruit. It cuts deep on the palate with complex flavours that run the gamut from dark cherry to juicy cassis and plums all backed up by layers of baking spices, solid structure and ripe tannins.”  Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, April 13, 2018
