Hidden Bench Estate Pinot Noir Beamsville Bench VQA 2012 

Medium dense garnet color. Nose of smoke, spices, oak, fresh and sun loaded red berries with earth notes. This is a deep and pretty nose. Palate goes forst on strawberry notes, then comes the spicy and smoky flavors, oak, then earth and crusehd rocks. You can feel the warmth of the climate, but also there is a good acidity level, all mastered in the winemaking. Again, I liked the depth, the complexity and the lenght of this wine. Great one! Excellent (91) 

Made of 100% pinot noir. Bottle closed by a DIAM cork. Aged 12 months in a mix of 25% new oak and older barrels, then 6 months in tanks prior to bottling. Alcohol level of 13,5%
