 Tasting Notes

Black cherry on the nose with a touch of smokiness; on the palate red berry flavours of strawberry, raspberry, and black cherry meet smoky qualities. Medium acidity with hints of sweet oak on the finish.

 Food Pairing Suggestions

Enjoy with pork dishes with herbs or wine reduction sauce like rosemary pork loin, or pork chops with wine and garlic, delicious with game meat like duck comfit or grilled quail. The JCR Pinot Noir also pairs well with cheese with smoky or nutty flavors, like Gouda or Gruyère. For a special finish to a meal, pair with dark chocolate.

 Critical Acclaim

“A lighter hue in the glass, as PEC Pinots often are, but a flashy nose of brambly/savoury red fruits, nutmeg/vanilla spice and river-rock minerality. Such verve and finesse on the palate with rich and savoury black cherries, brambly raspberries, anise, bright acidity, elegant spice notes, polished tannins and length through the finish.” Score 93 Rick Vansickle, Winesinniagara.com

 “Aromas of red berry fruit, sharp spice and herbal notes abound on the nose of this flagship pinot. It blankets the palate with crunchy red cherry and red raspberry along with beetroot and mixed spice flavours. This is medium weight with good mouthfeel and lingering lip-smacking finish and aftertaste that’s dry, lingering and balanced with ripe cherry flavour galore. Pick up a few and enjoy with smoked duck breasts or duck confit.” Score 93 Vic Harradine, winecurrent.com

 “Supple and sappy with nice fine red cherry and plum fruit. Has delicacy and poise. Very expressive: light with nice complexity.” Score 93 Jamie Goode, wineanorak.com

 “Don’t let the colour fool you; it’s shockingly pale enough to qualify as a Tavel rosé, yet the flavour is hardly lacking. Silky in texture, it comes across like a medley of forest berries infused with earthy-woodsy characters and baking spices. The tannins are very soft. It should match nicely with grilled salmon or roast pork tenderloin.” Score 90 Beppi Crosariol, The Globe and Mail
