Black Cloud Wine Club
As we have previously blogged, about 8 months ago we joined the Black Cloud Wine Club. It provides us with three bottles of winemaker Bradley Cooper’s unique Pinot Noir blends. Today our third shipment arrived, the Black Cloud Altostratus. Our previous shipments were the Black Cloud Cumulus Nimbus (read here) and the Black Cloud Fleuvage Pinot Noir (read here).

Black Cloud Altostratus
The 2012 Altostratus is a Pinot Noir from the Okanagan Valley. As many of your know, Tara is always on the search for Pinot Noir. For a Pinot Noir the Altostratus is a little darker than you might expect, although nothing like a Merlot or Cabernet Sauvignon. There is a hint of coffee or herbs in the flavour. The recommended wine pairings from their website include lamb, pork, game bird, salmon, venison and wild mushroom risotto. As Pinot Noir lovers, this was another excellent bottle and thankfully we have two more for another time. Our three bottles were included as part of our wine club membership, but if you are a wine club member and wanted a few more bottles they are available for $32 per bottle, $35 per bottle if you are not a wine club member.
