WineDiva's Review

Classic, juicy, complex.
Pinot Noir Maestro, Grant Stanley heads up the winemaking at Spearhead, so you can have faith these wines are going to be on-point.
The Coyote Vineyard is a western aspect site near West Kelowna with a south facing exposure. The vines (Dijon clone 115) were planted in its volcanic soils in 2008. The wine was matured 13 months in 100% French oak barrel.
Of the Spearhead Pinots this one seems to have a sturdier posture. Fragrant cedar and dried violets, leather and vanilla, star anise and cocoa are layered with red cherry and sun warmed raspberries. The palate is silky and juicy; flavours of tangy red, beet greens, dark cocoa and toasted spices dominate and linger across the finish. Classic, balanced and I think better with additional cellar time to really meld.
