Exultet Estates 2008 Pinot Noir
**** Rating

Prince Edward County, Canada  $35.00 

Newcomer Exultet Estates has made an impressive debut with this spicy Pinot Noir and its ripe, complex Chardonnay sourced from a vineyard in Milford. The Chardonnay was one of the bottles presented at the Cool Climate Chardonnay tasting recently staged in New York City. But the fragrance and bright acidity of the estate Pinot made the most profound impression on me. New oak notes peek through on the palate, but there's enough cherry and raspberry notes to contrast that smoke and cedar. Give this a year to better integrate for best enjoyment.  (CW)
