Blue Mountain Reserve Pinot Noir 2015

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe BM Reserve is all that and more most years. It is a wine that should be reserved from drinking for a minimum five years to allow it to become the complex pinot it is. The 2015 may be an exception given the ripeness and a sweetness that beguiles, if only because it’s been rare. Look for a smoky, savoury, spicy, sweet pinot in a rare Russian River meets Okanagan style, with sweet raspberry, ripe cherry and spices filling in a plump palate. Warm, round, soft, silky, and soft, this will likely fade sooner than later, but why miss the party? Duck, salmon, pork all work here and now.Tasted: 27 June 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 39.90 winery direct; private wine shops AB 44.95 private wine shops Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
