Drink of the Week – Tinhorn Creek Oldfield Series Pinot Noir 2008

Last Friday we joined Aura Restaurant at Nita Lake Lodge in celebrating the award-winning wines of Tinhorn Creek Vineyards in an exclusive winemakers’ dinner during Whistler Cornucopia.

We enjoyed a delicious menu inspired by seasonal, organic vegetables crafted by talented Executive Chef Michael Guy, as Tinhorn Creek Viticulturist and Vineyard Manager provided guests a unique view from the vineyard, showcasing some of their amazing wines.

One of our favourites is Tinhorn Creek’s first ever release of the Oldfield Series 2008 Pinot Noir. The latest addition to the Oldfield Series, the 2008 Pinot Noir offers notes of cherry-vanilla, raspberry bush, lavender, rosehips and pomegranate, bolstered by flavours of oak and warm spices. A perfect wine for the holiday season!
