CedarCreek Platinum Reserve Pinot Noir 2004

What varietal(s): Pinot Noir
Where: Okanagan Valley (Kelowna), BC
Why drink it: Because it’s a delicious Okanagan Pinot
Extra, extra: $40, 14.1%, sold out

This is one of CedarCreek’s top tier wines (Platinum) that sell out quickly. For the Okanagan this is a great Pinot Noir. This ruby red wine has aromas of red berries (cherry, raspberry, strawberry), spice (clove), rich chocolate and coffee. The flavours echo the nose. Aged in French oak, the oak flavours are nicely integrated into the wine. There’s no overpowering oak in this wine. It’s light to medium bodied with medium tannins and medium to high acidity. Lush and velvety, it goes down smooth and lingers with a flavourful finish.
