Fort Berens Pinot Noir 2013

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPerfumed black raspberry, spiced cherry, strawberry jam aromas open this Lillooet pinot, a blend of five clones from their home vineyard. The finely textured, rasped spice palate carries more black raspberry, black cherry, juicy ripe plum and fragrant pomegranate, lifted with easy acidity and carrying through to a lingering spicy black pepper and cinnamon bark finish. Lovely finesse with depth of fruit here - an impressive, deeper berry example and promising show for the future of Lillooet fruit. Now if only they'd lose the plastic cork...Tasted: 13 November 2015Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
