Tantalus Pinot Noir Reserve 2016

East Kelowna, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaYear two for this reserve release, conspicuous by its gold Dempsey Bob mask label and black wax seal. A mix of Dijon clones 667, 777 and 115, it is all handmade, including foot trodding the fruit. I love the elegance that permeates the dry, plummy, dark fruit, lightly spiced and with silken tannins. The finish is long and warm, accentuated by a savoury undercurrent (think of Nuits-Saint-Georges). You can and should cellar this for five years or serve it now with a substantial bird dish. The reserve spends 16 months in French oak (30 percent new) before being bottled unfined and unfiltered.Tasted: 05 October 2019Tasted by: Prices: BC 60.95 winery direct Producer: Tantalus VineyardsDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
