Black Swift Vineyards Palo Solara Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaPalo Solara is another East Kelowna site in need of a sub-appellation. The vineyard is cool-sited, and has been sustainably farmed for some time. Suitably pale, the nose is an earthy, forest floor affair with savoury black cherry, and a touch of bitter/toasted almond and smoke. Still just a baby, this will need a year or two to gather itself and move forward. Low on fruit but big on style, it’s another piece of the BC pinot puzzle.Tasted: 21 February 2019Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 49.99 winery direct Producer: The HatchDistributors: Winery Direct
