PINOT NOIR 2016 VQA Niagara Peninsula
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer LEANING POST
Assessed from a bottle purchased at the LCBO. This small batch (only 8 barrels) blend from two vineyards produces very dry, tangy, crancherry-driven Pinot Noir. This 2016 has a medium-light red colour with a fairly spicy, sandalwood-tinged, red-apple-plum-cranberry nose. Dry, medium to medium-light bodied, very tangy, slightly spicy, plum-red-apple-crancherry flavours with a lingering, gently cedary, high acid finish. Quite ready-to-drink. Lot number is 110918 on the lower part of the glass bottle. Has 12.5% alcohol and 4 g/L residual sugar. T CSPC 523183

TASTING NOTE: From de-classification choices made in the winery, the NP pinot noir is a blend of Lowrey and Senchuk vineyard fruit that didn't make it into the single-vineyard bottles. Falls somewhere not precisely calculated in the 12-18 months barrel age time for fruit sweet and structured, elevated into the ether tonal zone and ready to please, if you please. Take some time and realize the dream, of pinot noir made the right way from an agglomeration out of all the correct places and spaces. Drink 2019-2021.
