Blue Mountain Reserve Pinot Noir

Blue Mountain Reserve Pinot Noir 2016

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOver the years this label has been a consistent performer drawing from vines now 10 to 30+ years, and four French clones. The nose is sweet and smoky with leather, Worcestershire sauce, and strawberries. The attack is drier than most other Okanagan pinots, the tannins light and the fruit an earthy mix of sour cherries, savoury raspberries, orange peel and tobacco. It is well balanced with a tension that pulls you along to the finish. The Reserve is normally released at the end of April. You can drink this now, but it will easily age for another two to five years in your cellar.Tasted: 15 April 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 39.90 winery direct; private wine shops AB 44.95 private wine shops Producer: Blue Mountain Vineyard & CellarsDistributors: Keystone Fine Wines
