JoieFarm Winery 2014 Pinot Noir, Okanagan Valley, $24

joie-pinot-noirJoieFarm drew on vineyards on the Okanagan region’s Naramata Bench and in Summerland for this Pinot Noir. The result is a cool-climate, elegant drink featuring red cherries, cranberries and refined oak and light spice. On the palate, it is seductively smooth instead of aggressively edgy like some of its southern cousins from Oregon. Pair it with roast duck or venison tenderloin. This earned a gold medal at the 2016 Cascadia Wine Competition.

Rating: Outstanding!

Production: 700 cases

Alcohol: 12.9%
