On tasting this Pinot, my mouth just expressed so much delight as the flavours just jumped out & stayed with my taste buds. This is a true Pinot delight at a great price for a Central Otago Pinot found at the LCBO, as well, I just love the writings on the front & back labels. It truly does have “Traces of Bloody Good Wine”. Score: 94/100

Tasting Note: Light garnet in colour with good acidity, an intense nose, smooth tannin & a long length on the finish. Wine features dark cherry, strawberry, raspberry, grilled portobello mushrooms, peat moss, autumn leaves & barnyard notes.   

Negatives: None

Interesting Point: Chill to 15C & use the balloon style glassware

Pairings: Drink this now or in the next 5-7 years & pair it with grilled duck breast.

My Opinion: Highly Recommended
