2021 Flat Rock Pinot Noir Classics

I haven’t had a Flat Rock Pinor Noir in a long time, so when a guest brought it over I was thrilled to reunite with an old fav … I was positively shocked to see the Gravity Pinot has crept all the way up to $40 a bottle … Duck was on the menu so Pinot was a great choice … but then again the guest asked for a suggestion 😉 Slightly garnet in color with a nice varietal nose. On the mid palate the wine is spot on, exactly what one would expect from a Pinot, and I’ve always considered Flat Rock to be one of the Benchmarks for a good Niagara Pinot Noir … Nice cherry and rustic notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays nice firm tannins, acidity the flavors cling to mouth … nice and dry. I would give this a solid 88+, the complexity since I last had this wine has definitely kicked up a notch or two … This should easily keep a few years, but in boat, this is spot on approachable now, but I appreciate an edgier wine. I can’t say I find my taste buds aligning with the LCBO description … From the LCBO web site, check stock:
