I only recently tasted this at the estate with Westcott owners Carolyn Hurst and Grant Westcott, along with winemaker Casey Kulczyk. One of the many things this estate has accomplished in its 10 years of operation is being able to hold their wines in bottle so consumers can feel confident in drinking upon release. Watch for a full report on Wescott soon on Wines In Niagara. The 2019 estate Pinot, a blend of the estate's Westcott Home Farm vineyard and Butlers' Grant, is 30% whole cluster fermented with wild malolactic fermentation. It was fermented in 100% French oak, of which 20% was new, and aged for 22 months. Such a gorgeous nose of pretty red berries, black raspberries, seductive Pinot perfume notes and perfectly integrated spice notes. It's nicely integrated and balanced with bright red berries, anise, fine tannins, some structure, a pinch of spice, subtle earthy/savoury notes, and a bright, finessed finish. Very nice Pinot that represents the house style. Can still cellar 5+ years. Score - 92. (Rick VanSickle, winesinniagara.com, March 15, 2023)
