Bachelder Lowrey Old Vines Pinot Noir 2020

St David's Bench, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, CanadaFrom Lowrey Vineyard, but a different parcel than the Old Eastern Block. The vines here date to 1988 and 1993, on a gentle slope at the base of the Niagara Escarpment. It shows lifted, medicinal cherry and cranberry, accented by dried shrubby herbs, lavender, and thyme blossoms. Although impressively concentrated, with considerable dry extract, this is surprisingly lean and tart, lacking the generosity that's evident across the balance of the 2020 line-up.Tasted: 29 November 2022Tasted by: Prices:
