Elegant, classic, fine.
Spearhead, located in east Kelowna, makes this single vineyard Pinot from the estate Saddle Block Vineyard, which contains three Dijon clones (115, 777, 828, 667 ); it was then aged 13 months in 100% French oak.
The nose is a lovely potpourri of cedar chips and dried violets, bright red berry and cherry aromas, finely ground baking spice, and suggestions of leather, cocoa and beet greens. The palate is juicy and has classic pinosity; tangy red fruits mimic the nose and it has a fine-boned and feminine character. It is elegant, silky, lifted and complex; all in one.
