Wine – 2006 Leyda Cahuil Vineyard Pinot Noir

Wow… I’m just getting over one of those annoying Autumn colds and can finally taste wine again (thank GOD!). I missed it. 🙂

OK, so I grabbed this at Kitsilano Wine Cellars last week and had been looking forward to quaffing it. What a tasty welcome back to wine. It tastes a lot like a decent Oregon Pinot, at a (somewhat) fraction of the price.

The colour is a medium red, with a juicy nose that pushes out vanilla, berry, cherries and cranberry fruit… with a bit of heat (it has 14% booze). The flavours are a great combination of vanilla, berry, cherry, pepper and herbal notes… bloody tasty stuff. It has layers and layers and a finish that lasts for a while.

I loved this wine, especially for the money – It’s a fantastic value.

$29.90 at Kitsilano Wine Cellars here in Vancouver.
