Burrowing Owl, a BC winery in South Okanagan Valley was known for its award-winning vineyard style as much of the grapes they produced went into making well talked about vintages, ladened with winery labels that weren’t their own. It was not until 1988 when the Burrowing Owl Estate Winery was born that we started to experience estate grown wines from Jim Wyse, founder.

At its inception, Burrowing Owl Estate Winery focused much on producing Sauvignon Blanc and some Chardonnay. It wasn’t until years later that they started to grow Pinot Noir grapes and we’re happy they did because out of this venture, the Burrowing Owl Pinot Noir 2014 was later born.

On colour, the Burrowing Owl Pinot Noir 2014 holds a garnet hue. On the nose, red and blue berries, vanilla, and smoked meat are noted. On the palate, raspberry, earthiness, chocolate and spice are present, amongst a long finish.

Burrowing Owl Pinot Noir 2014 is a fantastic showing from this winery.  We’re also big fans of their Calioppe Wines line and highly recommend their Figure Eight Red Blend.

This wine retails at the LCBO for $40.95
