JoieFarm En Famille Reserve Pinot Noir 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis year's Reserve is a blend of Naramata and Summerland fruit, and a mix of ten clones. The destemmed fruit was fermented in small lots, macerated for a week, gently pressed and then aged for eight months in barrel (40 percent new) for eight months. Dark and dusky, with wild blackberry, plum, black raspberry, cherry, blueberry all swirled with fine smoke and exotic peppercorn spicing that warms up the finish. Though potent and up front, this still is filled with graceful, pretty charm. This structured, youthful wine is all packed into a tidy 13.4 degree package, muscular like a Boston Terrier. Impressive, and will benefit with time in cellar.Tasted: 21 September 2018Tasted by: Prices: BC 40.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: JoieFarmDistributors: Winery Direct
