Blue Grouse Quill Pinot Noir 2016

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaThis is honest pinot, made with 50 percent Cowichan Valley fruit and 50 percent from the Okanagan. The attack is surprisingly rich, with warm, peppery, red/black fruit and a touch of tannin. This wine is aged in older barrels of French and American oak that are beginning to fade, leaving a slightly more authentic pinot character. Look for sour cherry, leaf, soya notes that finish clean and proper. An interesting mix of cool and warm fruit that’s showing increasingly more promise. Grilled salmon is the pairing here.
