2018 Gold Pinot Noir
A deep purple colour, luxuriant with dark cherry, strawberry, and rhubarb aromas, layered with notes of chocolate and subtle vanilla. The palate is pleasing on entry with inviting dark fruit, cassis, cocoa, and hints of cola, along with savoury notes inviting us to take another sip. Tannins are round and rich. Good acid balance with a generous finish.
We recommend patience and a favourable cellaring environment to encourage the development of alluring tertiary characteristics. This wine will age beautifully through 2025.

The highest scoring Canadian Pinot Noir
94 Points - Katherine McEachnie
A silky and refined mouthfeel with a subtle kiss of oak gently complimenting the fruit by taking a supporting role and letting the fruit lead the way. Harmonious, refined, and silky tannins. This is a sophisticated Pinot Noir which exhibits the high quality and finesse of a Premier Cru Chambolle Musigny from the Côte d’Or in Burgundy France. One of BC’s finest!
94 Points - Tim Pawsey , Hired Belly
Invites with vibrant red berries, cherry, violet and some earthy hints. A supple mouth-filling palate with seamless, approachable tannins. Cherry, vanilla, chocolate and spice with a touch of savoury through the lengthy close. Truly the sum of the parts, this Pinot is luscious but structured with serious power behind 'velvet glove' finesse. Low yields reward with pure fruit, well-managed oak and deft acidity, all in absolute harmony.
