Pinot Noir, Ashlyn, Anthony Buchanan Wines, Black Sage Gravelbar Vineyard, Oliver, Okanagan Valley, BC, 13.2% abv. 2018

Here’s a silky, West Coast Pinot Noir which is not only delicious, but also a beautifully appointed work of art.   Anthony Buchanan’s dipped-in-periwinkle-blue-wax gem has been completed with new artwork and named for his daughter, Ashlyn.

This bottle was #1547 out of 3480 produced, and it was unfined and unfiltered, with all the best bits left in. 

On the eyes, it’s a deeply translucent ruby with serious aromas of late season raspberry, cherry, earth, wet leaves, and fir – leaving you to imagine a walk through the forest following a cool rain.

The palate is dry with food friendly acidity and elegant tannins, more cherry, red plum and field berry, cranberry and bark.

This is a slender, restrained wine that isn’t looking to overpower, but rather to impress with its finesse.
