Pinot Noir, Reserve, Mission Hill, Okanagan VQA, BC, 2012, 13% abv.

mission hillDrinking this, one should almost exclaim, “We’re not in Kansas anymore,” because it’s ruby red, as in ‘Dorothy’s-shoes-were-here,’ ruby red.

With its deep aromas of Okanagan cherry, moss and cedar frond, this wine is characteristically BC; the green moss gets me every time.

The palate is dry with scraped tannins and medium acidity and the body is a little lighter than anticipated at medium minus.  Flavours are medium and extend more of the nose with cherry, ripe purple plum, more green moss, cedar strips, some nutmeg and a good finish.

And yes, this would go great with Christmas dinner.

WSET Good
