WineDiva's Review

Pristine, bouncy, expressive.
Pinot Noir Maestro, Grant Stanley heads up the winemaking at Spearhead these days, so there's no surprise we're seeing additional SKUs of Pinot.
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 soars above; high-toned wild red berries, smoked rhubarb, bacon fat, leather and finely ground white pepper aromas morph into a sweet and expressive palate that is bouncy and pristine. Flavours of bergamot, fresh berries, rose petals and spice wash across a silky palate. Excellent length and character.
