This is a welcome second release of the 2015 Double Noir, originally available in the April 1, 2017 Vintages release. It’s an engaging Pinot Noir-Gamay blend from Thirty Bench’s new “Winemaker’s Blend” label. Bright acidity drives the pleasantly juicy cherry, raspberry and blackberry fruit, balanced nicely by a subtle, earthy, twiggy undertone. A little wood shows through, with some vanilla and roasted notes adding breadth and complexity. Perhaps not quite as lively as six months earlier on, so I’d drink this soon, while looking forward to the 2016 edition. • Tasted 2017-09-16 • LCBO id#493973 • Find it at your nearest LCBOANDREW PELLER LIMITED (Agent)
