Van Westen Vineyards Di Bello Wines VD Pinot Noir 2019

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, Canada2019 is the 9th year of collaboration between the Van Westen family and the Di Bello family regarding the VD Pinot Noir. The style has always been on the indulgent, hedonistic side, in this case featuring a spicy, mouth-filling pinot more akin to Sonoma than Côte de Beaune. Still, it is Naramata from its floral black cherry, mineral nose to its sweet, round, black cherry fruit, sweet tobacco, and silky tannins. This is the pinot for richer duck dishes, pork, and grilled salmon.Tasted: 14 December 2020Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices: BC 40.00 winery online/direct, select private retailers Producer: Van Westen VineyardsDistributors: Winery Direct
