Blue Grouse Pinot Noir 2021

Cowichan Valley, Vancouver Island, British Columbia, CanadaShowing cherry pie crust, clay, forest floor, and some red licorice aromas, with a light body and intensity, with touches of various savoury berries. Tannins are supple, but holding some finish in their grip just now. It needs another year in the bottle to properly unfurl. The wine is a 50/50 blend of Saison Vineyard and the winery's 35 year old estate blocks, that aim to create a balanced expression of Cowichan Pinot Noir.Tasted: 22 August 2023Tasted by: Prices:
