Juicy, silky, classic.
Without doubt, Michael Bartier is one of British Columbia's most talented and humble winemakers. He makes honest wines and trusts the site and the fruit to dictate the wine. For wine club members only, the Pinot Noir grapes offered to Michael for this wine come from Naramata and it was aged 17 months in neutral French oak barrels and tank.
Classic styling, it offers aromas of forest floor and spice, tealeaf, sour cherry and cranberry, dried violets, cedar, leather and star anise. It's juicy and silky and the palate is more grounded than the nose. Lovely fruit expression with a long fresh finish.
