Averill Creek Somenos Series Pinot Noir 2015

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaCowichan Valley's Averill Creek is hitting it out of the park with this pinot, one that was very good last year and even better in 2015. The colour is on the darkish side of pinot, leading with a spicy, black cherry nose lifted with black raspberries and forest floor notes. The palate is medium weight with silky, refined textures and savoury, red fruit flavours throughout. Long and complex, this will change your thinking about Island wines. Well done Averill Creek; all we need is a piece of grilled Sockeye salmon.Tasted: 27 June 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
