Quails’ Gate is a Canadian winery, located in the Okanagan Valley of British Colombia. The wine, a reserve Pinot Noir, approximately $45 CAD. As we usually find for wines from this region, it is very earthy, not something I find desirable in a Pinot. We like our Pinot’s to be very fragrant to the nose and light and flavorful to the tongue. This is my common complaint for wines from BC. Having said that, I would very much recommend this one for a variety of reasons. First, many people prefer the earthiness exhibited by this bottle, so I must disqualify myself from being overly critical, just not my cup of tea so to speak. Second, I have had many wines in this price range that were inferior to this one. Finally, it is a Canadian wine and I must support it just on that alone. You be the judge after you have tried it. I give it a 3 out of 5 on our personal scale, and will stick to the French or California Pinot’s.
