June 1 2015
Experience the sensuous balance of silky tannins and romantic spice while sliding into the moments of awe.
Rick Vansickle of Niagara wines says this: 40 Knots Pinot Noir 2016 ($30, 89 points) — A lovely nose of wild raspberry, pure cherry, strawberry, cranberry and light spice. It’s silky smooth on the palate with savoury red fruits, cedar and subtle toasted spice notes. John Schreiner says this: 40 Knots Pinot Noir 2016 ($29.90 for 398 cases). The low alcohol (10.6%) gives this estate-grown Pinot Noir a refreshing lightness. It has aromas and flavours of cherry mingled with a peppery spice. 88.
Root stock planted 2005 - 2007 from France on glacier till soil facing the Salish Sea. The perfect climate to this perfect Pinot terroir. Warm days and cool evenings with rich salt air for superior aging.
Pinot Noir developed intense ripe fruit with outstanding concentration and depth of flavors.
