2006 in 2017. Deep dense tones of raisin,fig, date. Very well preserved and subtle. Fruit is forward with alcohol protecting it. Has remained pleasantly light. Wonderful finesse on the tannins. Structured. Pleased to see this VQA deliver. No sediment after 11 years. Low acid. Great vintage.

We drank this with racks of lamb on Christmas Eve. A very nice accompaniment strong without being overwhelming with the lamb.

A bit deeper and richer of a Pinot than I've had recently from the Okanagan. Different, but very nice. 🍒, blackberry, vanilla and a smooth finish. Easy drinking. Easily could have polished off a second bottle. We decanted for about an hour, or about as long as it took to put the kids to bed.

Sweet nose of bright red berries. Finessed palate of plum with hints of pepper. Alcohol hides the delicate light tannins. Short smooth finish.

Red berries and cherries on the nose. Colour is light red. Fruit forward after the wine has opened for about an hour. Candied red fruit, particularly cherries. Needs another year or two in the cellar.
