Tightrope Winery Pinot Noir Rubis 2018

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaOne of two pinot noirs from 2018, this comes from Naramata Bench's Rubis Family Vineyard. After destemming, a 5-day cold soak, and native ferment, this was aged in French oak (30% new) for 10 months before bottling. Dark plum, bright black cherry glides along a gently plump palate, spiced with sasparilla and sultry baking spices. Tannins are long and supple, guiding this to a slightly warming finish—best alongside proteins to match, like duck or pork tenderloin.Tasted: 09 October 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 35.00 winery direct, private wine shops Producer: Tightrope WineryDistributors: Vintage Corks Limited
