WineDiva's Review

Powerful, supple, rich.
Pinot Noir maestro, Grant Stanley heads up the winemaking at Spearhead these days, so the Pinots are in good hands.
Starting with the 2019 vintage he began releasing three site specific and unfiltered Pinots (includes Golden Retreat and Coyote), which were fermented for 13 months in French oak (25% new).

The Saddle Block is located at Spearhead, on their estate vineyard in South Kelowna. The vines (Dijon 115 and 828) are rooted at 1550ft ASL in glacial loam consisting of sand, silt and clay with southern and northern exposure.

Notes of chocolate cherries and blackberry, licorice root, white pepper, cedar and earth lead to a supple palate with black pepper, leather, toasted spices and quite bold dark berry flavours. It's quite powerful and very Syrah-like in style.
