Matt’s review:  This beautiful Okanagan Pinot, from Canada’s Wine Capital, is a terrific example of the world-class wines Burrowing Owl is producing from their picturesque winery located along the Black Sage Road in Oliver, BC. Their 2015 Pinot shows a medium ruby red colour with a garnet hue. Very complex, the nose and palate offer dried cherry and blueberry, black sage, cedar, clove, with a hint of cacao and violet. The palate is fresh and layered, with perfectly integrated fruit, acid, and faint tannins. This is a robust yet very elegant Pinot that will complement a wide range of dishes from creamy mushroom risotto, Waygu beef, to roasted quail with fois gras. You can’t go wrong pairing a fine meal with this versatile and delicious wine. Tasted September 2017. 92+ points. Matt Steeves –
