Mission Hill Reserve Pinot Noir

Mission Hill Reserve Pinot Noir 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThe Reserve Pinot is 77 percent from estate vineyards in Lakeshore, with the remainder coming off the Naramata Bench. It spends a generous 11 months in French oak and is currently projecting a thin, tight profile laced with red fruits and smooth, smoky tannins. I love the restraint here, allowing the red fruit and dried herbs to carry the back end that finishes a little less fat and drier than most. Pork chops, mushrooms or favourite cheeses work here. It should improve further in the bottle if you can wait.Tasted: 04 June 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 27.99 BCLS AB 26.00 private wine shops ON 25.00 Vintages QC 26.00 MB 28.00 Producer: Mission Hill Family EstateDistributors: Mark Anthony Wines and Spirits
