Pinot Noir, Optimum, Gehringer Brothers, Okanagan Valley, BC, 12.5% abv, 2011

2011 wasn’t exactly a banner vintage in the Okanagan Valley and to be honest, this wine is indicative of that.

Clear with a medium minus ruby core moving to a thin pink rim this Pinot Noir has light legs. On the nose, it has average intensity with youthful aromas of raspberry and plum.

The palate is dry and shows medium acidity, very light tannin and alcohol alongside a medium minus body.  Flavours are common – field berry and red plum and the finish is average.

A WSET Acceptable wine, not meant for aging.
