The 2008 growing season was cooler than normal for the Okanagan Valley. This resulted in a slower ripening of the Pinot Noir fruit, generating fantastic varietal character. The wine has a nice bright terracotta core with a raspberry rim appearance. The nose consists of red forest fruit, and subtle earth tones long associated with Pinot Noir. On the palate, the eart and forest fruit continue to dominate with refined silky, elegant tannins and balanced acidity. The wine has a beautiful mid-palate and such persistent flavour that you will not want to share it.
