Mission Hill Family Estate – Pinot Noir Reserve 2015 – BC VQA Okanagan Valley

The nose is aromatic, elegant, slightly powerful and offers a slight richness. It reveals notes of blackberry and crushed black plum associated with slight touches of blueberry, dark chocolate as well as hints of caramelization and a discreet hint of cardamom. The palate is fruity, well-balanced, elegant, nicely defined and offers a beautiful racy minerality, freshness, tension as well as a beautiful gourmandise. In the mouth this wine expresses notes of plum, black cherry and sligh notes of blackberry associated with hints of blueberry, dark chocolate and toasted oak/caramelized oak. There are slight notes of chocolate and a subtle hint of hazelnut on the finish/persistence. Good length.
