Crowsnest Family Pinot Noir

Crowsnest Family Pinot Noir 2016

Similkameen Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPretty crimson in colour, full of youthful appearance, with young aromas to match of chokecherry, and wild berries. There is a distinct herbal aroma that manifests on the palate as a savoury line through quite tart and perky red fruit. Considerable oak supports the herbal/berry flavours, and contributes to a weighty mouthfeel. The Similkameen's rugged conditions show well here, with decent concentration and a distinct salty note on the quite oaky finish. The alcohol is a trim 12% and helps it stay juicy and energetic.Tasted: 04 June 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 21.99 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Crowsnest Vineyards and Barcello CanyonDistributors: New World Wines Incorporated
