Bench 1775 Pinot Noir 2015

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaLovely dusky plum, wild cherry course through this darker shaded pinot noir, with a fine peppery grip and tug of wood siding the darkly perfumed black fruit. There's a bitter cassis / espresso nip on the finish. The wine makes more sense when you know that this had 11.5 percent syrah and a degree of merlot added to the estate pinot noir before some time in French oak (30 percent new). This bigger pinot would be a great pour alongside duck.Tasted: 21 October 2018Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 25.90 winery direct Producer: Bench 1775 WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
