TASTING NOTE: This is a quite fine, lighter pinot that captures classic cool climate cran-strawberry red fruit character with nicely woven oak spice and some pinot forest floor earthiness. It is mid-weight, fairly taut, firm and well balanced with some granular tannin. The focus and length are very good. And it avoids acetone volatility that bothers so many Ontario pinots.
