Quails' Gate Pinot Noir 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaQuails' Gate has long been known for their pinot noir, and the quality of this "entry-level" tier aptly demonstrates why. Most of these vines are older than twenty years now, and after cold soak were partially native fermented, before gentle pressing into French oak, where it remained for ten months. Though juicy and bright, this remains elegant, with ripe black raspberry, plum, cherry and ample alluring perfume streaming throughout waves of light smoke and fine ground pepper. Friendly, serious, classic BC pinot, drinking well now and into the short term.Tasted: 05 April 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 26.99 BCLS, winery direct, VQA shops AB 30.99 private wine shops MB 26.99 Manitoba's Liquor Marts Online QC 29.10 SAQ NS 30.00 PEI 30.09 PLCC YK 27.00 SK 30.00 SaskLiquor NB 27.99 NBLiquor Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
