TINHORN CREEK, Oldfield Series Pinot Noir 2008…. South Okanagan Valley, BC, The Wine Ladies Pick

 
Had the palate pleasure to enjoy this PinotNoir, with one of our favorites, sockeye salmon on the BBQ!  Great, never mind good Pinot Noirs are routinely more difficult to find, at a reasonable price point than most other mainstream grape varieties. Here, no shrinking violet, this Pinot delivers big black cherry, vanilla and a touch of spice on the palate while clocking in at 13.9% alcohol. Aged one year in French oak and three years in bottle, good weight, complexity, flavour and finish.
 
Tinhorn Creek Vineyards has been owned and operated by the Shaunessy and Oldfield families since 1993. The winery is located south of Oliver, BC, in the famed Golden Mile wine-growing district.
Tinhorn Creek sources fruit exclusively from its own vineyards: 150 acres of prime land on two very distinct benches.
The 100-acre Diamondback Vineyard on the Black Sage Bench and the 50-acre Tinhorn Creek Vineyard on the Golden Mile Bench. Winemaker Sandra Oldfield, produces the Oldfield Series from grapes carefully selected at harvest and hand crafted in the cellar.  Enjoy! @TinhornCreek @TheWineLadies
