Pearl Morissette, Jeunes Vignes Pinot Noir
Origin: Creek Shores, Niagara Peninsula, Ontario, Canada
Varietal: pinot noir
Producer's Notes: Do you often (or ever) think rock-and-roll when you drink Pinot Noir? Neither did we, but then this wine came along. Young Vines is the name of the game here. Made with 100% Pinot Noir from our high-density Home Farm vineyard, this is a bottle bursting with the classic Pinot Noir aromas behind a brilliant disguise of savory, dark spice. It tingles the senses with sheer pleasure, energy and youthful exuberance, leaving them sated and refreshed, yet wanting a repeat. The tannins are smooth and flavourful, barely containing the juiciness of fresh fruit rolling down the palate in unapologetic, rhythmic riffs. Some wines are full of symphonies, or sonatas - this bottle isn't. This Pinot Noir is pure, delicious rock-and-roll. Excellent with pretty much everything.
