Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Inspired by classic Burgundian Pinot Noir, this acclaimed grape is right at home on the Comox seaside. Cool, evening sea breezes blow through the vineyard on summer evenings, preserving the bright acidity and delicate nuance. Rich cherry and black pepper greet the nose, followed by a palate of silky tannins and refreshing brightness.
Awards
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.
