Classic Vancouver Island pinot noir. Delicate, pale, low alcohol (12 percent) by pinot standards, high acidity and freshness to beat the band. The fruit is decidedly red as in raspberries and pomegranate, with cedar, floral, spicy notes with light tannins. It's a pretty style, an intellectual style of pinot noir that will entice curious wine drinkers. It will work with any dish that is creamy or packing a bit of fat, be it salmon or a creamy, mushroom risotto. A stylish Vancouver Island pinot that makes a statement about a special place.
