Wine Tasting at Home – Gray Monk Pinot Noir
Gray Monk Winery
It has been a year or two since we have been to Gray Monk Winery but for some reason we “discovered” a number of bottles in our wine case and have been tasting them recently. A couple of weeks ago we tried the Gray Monk Odyssey Cabernet Sauvignon and last year did a blog on our tasting of the Gray Monk Gamay Noir. We’ve written about the winery before which you can read in the previous blogs but if you are not aware the winery is located in the heart of the Okanagan Valley halfway between Kelowna and Vernon.
2011 Gray Monk Pinot Noir
The Gray Monk Pinot Noir is made with grapes from a variety of vineyards in the Okanagan Valley and is aged in French Oak. It’s light burgundy in color and the wine has dark fruit aromas like blackberries. The taste has hints of plum and raspberry and is a little dry at the finish unlike what we would typically expect from a Pinot Noir. Served slightly chilled this wine can be a nice sipper or pair it with a variety of seafood. At $16.99 per bottle we would reccomend you give this wine a try as it is a good value.
