|ESTATE PINOT NOIR 2015 VQA Short Hills Bench, Niagara Escarpment
|Vintage Assessments Tasting Note
||HENRY OF PELHAM
|Faintly ambering deep brick red colour. Mature, slightly spicy, plum puree nose with some faintly earthy, cedary, horseradish-tinged notes. Dry, medium bodied, slightly tart, spicy, plum-crancherry flavours with a lingering, gently cedary finish. Quite ready-to-drink. Tasted twice. Has 13.5% alcohol and 3 g/L residual sugar. The 2012 (**/**+) with 88-points was released on October 28, 2017 at $24.95. UPDATE: I suggest that you pass on the 2015 and go directly to the Henry of Pelham website and buy their truly outstanding Estate Pinot Noir 2016 which I rate *** with 90-points for only $21.90 (the link is: https://store.henryofpelham.com/products/2015-pinot-noir-estate).

Dry, Spicy, Maturing
|TASTING NOTE: Medium-pale red with a slight orange tinge, this has notes of dried fruit, cherry jam and smoke on the nose. It's dry, light bodied, and tart on the palate with sour cherry and tannin that starts in the background and then slowly moves forward. There's a lengthy tang-laden finish. It pairs well with cherry-glazed duck breast. Score - 4 Stars (out of 5) (Dave Isaacs, winecurrent.com, April 8, 2017)
