1 Mill Road Black Pine Pinot Noir 2022

Naramata Bench, Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, CanadaBlack Pine is a small, 4 acre vineyard on the Naramata Bench, planted to four different pinot noir clones. This is the first release from this vineyard for Ben Bryant and Katie Truscott, and it's a solid start. At this early stage, the whole cluster use feels quite evident, adding stemmy spices on top of the crunchy red berries. The end result is a woodsy, firmly structured pinot that will benefit from another 2-3 years in bottle to come together.Tasted: 05 October 2023Tasted by: Prices:
