Bouquet of Niagara

I am now convinced that Niagara pinot noirs have this nose, this really distinctive earthiness and warmth. I drank a pinot noir this weekend, and I swear if we had drank it blind, I would have recognized it. I'd like to put together a more comprehensive look at Niagara pinot noirs - drink some of the best side by side. I'm thinking.....Lailey, Flat Rock, Malivoire, Tawse, Le Clos Jordanne, Iniskillin Montague Estate, Featherstone. Of course, I'd love to taste Le Clos Jordanne. Just too damn hard to get my hands on a bottle, troubling considering that it's just been producing wines for 4, maybe 5 years?

Look how orange the rim is. Almost no saturation at the edge. And this is only 4 years old!!
