Rocky Creek Pinot Noir 2016

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaThe 2015 growing season was a winner in the Cowichan Valley and this wine is showing some improvement over last year. The colour is pale red with fresh, spicy, forest floor - more terroir, less fruit. The attack is fresh with skinny, sappy cherry, plums and cedar with a film of oak and some drying tannins in the finish. It will need some more time in bottle. Nice to see a natural cork this year. Best now with fatty dishes, like duck liver paté.Tasted: 29 October 2018Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 30.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Rocky Creek WineryDistributors: Winery Direct
