As good as this wine is it's certainly not indicative of what to expect out of Niagara Pinot Noir every year which will be disappointing to some and welcomed by others. Young vines and a hot season made this lightening in a bottle wine and it's been well received by a few critics now.

I personally have always been more excited by the 08 and now the 09 and will be even more for the 2010. I agree that it's almost California in style because of its lushness and weight but has been still called "Burgundian" and having minerality by Gary V. and Wine Enthusiast.

It's funny you mention alcohol because when everyone was praising it early on I kept asking people if they thought it had too much heat. I think lately the fruit has come out more to compete with that heat but other than that it's got exceptional balance.

Nice review and I can't wait to get your opinion on the 08 from frw.
