Blue Mountain Reserve Pinot Noir 2016

Okanagan Falls, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaThis youthful wine really shines with some airtime, allowing the sweetly spiced, ripe raspberries, sapid strawberries, cherries to expand and relax in the glass. Forest berries, leather, sweet smoke, fine nutmeg and cinnamon season this lengthy, silky, confident pinot, crafted from vines 10-32 years old, and six French clones. After a native ferment, this spent time in new-to-four-year French oak until spring. Tannins are soft and fine, and the finish is soft, fine and lightly smokey.Tasted: 16 May 2019Tasted by: Prices:
