Pinot Noir, Dehart Vineyard, Martin’s Lane Winery, Okanagan Valley VQA, British Columbia, 2015, 14% abv., C$100

From the heavily lauded Martin’s Lane Winery located in Kelowna, BC, this Pinot Noir is absolutely world class.

Its translucent garnet tone offers a deep nose of mulberry, cherry, deeply ripened strawberry, freshly turned soil, and mushroom.

The palate has mouth-watering acidity and rich berry flavours – decadent mulberry, black cherry, more overripe strawberry, and August boysenberry. A touch of soya sauce with Chinese five spice and cinnamon rounds it out, and is layered over supple leather and fresh soil.

The tannins are resolved, and the finish lingers. What a wine. Every component delivers and is beautifully integrated and balanced.
