I am coming to appreciate Pinot noirs more and more. They are very food friendly. And is a go to for me when it comes to turkey and the like. This one is in the general list at the LCBO so very easy to put your hands on. Garnet in color with a nice rustic nose. On the mid palate the wine displays nice rustic notes to match the nose. Lots of varietal soft red berry notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some nice soft tannins and acidity. It is a varietal yummy pinot. I would give it an 88 or so. Very nice for the price.
