This perfectly pitched Pinot Noir deliciously evokes the unique region of the Cowichan Valley. Here long, warm, dry summers and mild, moist winters make this Canada’s only maritime Mediterranean climate zone, and a welcome place for diverse wine grapes. Early ripening Pinot Noir excels here, and this 2016 bottling is one of the very best examples of Pinot not just from the Island, but from all of BC. It’s supremely elegant with a perfumed nose that mingles violets and damp earth scents with red berries, and the palate is awash with ripe strawberry, raspberry and cherry flavours. All this jubilant fruit pads a mid-weight frame, and fresh and racy acidity lights up the wine from within. The tannins are sweet and mild, making this a fine wine for salmon, sablefish or tuna. Best of all to me is the hint of earthy, gamey, woodsy complexity that only Pinot can bring to the table. It’s subtle in this young wine, but if you pour it into a large glass (ideally a special Pinot Noir fish-bowl shape), swirl slowly and inhale deeply, you’ll catch these ethereal scents amongst the fruit and spicy oak notes. This expressive Pinot can age for several years, but you might pair it now with robust grilled fish, seared duck breast or hearty mushroom pasta.
