Quails' Gate Pinot Noir

Quails' Gate Pinot Noir 2017

Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaNow a product of older vines, this pinot embodies the West Coast style, ripe and soft but with more restraint than you might expect. The attack is spicy, with sage dusted black cherries and a puff of toasted oak. It’s the texture that attracts, soft and silky, but with freshness filling in the finish. There are still some tannins to shed so a year or two in the bottle could be in order. If you are going to open it now be sure to choose robust dishes like oven roasted duck, grilled pork chops, or a mushroom risotto.Tasted: 22 March 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 26.99 BCLS, winery direct, VQA shops AB 30.99 private wine shops MB 26.99 Manitoba's Liquor Marts Online QC 29.10 SAQ NS 30.00 PEI 30.09 PLCC YK 27.00 SK 30.00 SaskLiquor NB 27.99 NBLiquor Producer: Quails' Gate Vineyards Estate WineryDistributors: Appellation Wine Marketing
