Vancouver based, lucky enough to travel regularly to wine countries like Chile and Australia. Enjoying Okanagan wines a lot lately. They help me get through ano...
Jammy with raspberry, spices and black currant. Easy drinking wine. It is from 3 separate areas of the Okanagan Valley, which is different than many of the single vineyard wines that Meyer produces. This is my first bottle my wine club shipment, so it really tastes like..... victory. — 6 days ago
Fruit forward, 🍒, raspberry, minerals, soil. Smooth drinking, rounded off with some tannins on this young wine. My bro brought it in from Laungdoc and it is a nice rep for the region, albeit on the pricier side for this super value region. I had Puech-Haut when visiting Montpelier years ago so it brought back some great memories. — 3 months ago
Brought this wine for a kiwi Pinot noir night with some friends. Funny enough, they bought the same wine, but 2016 version. Elegant , smooth with round finish. Cherry, blackberry along with an earthiness. The 2016 was bigger on the nose, while the 2014 was more subtle with a similar flavour profile. The 2014 won the night, but it was close. It didn't say so on the bottle, but being from New Zealand it was likely that the grapes were crushed by hobbits. — 10 days ago
Valentine's dinner part 2. Ribeye with yam puree and super cheesy heart shaped beets with balsamic reduction. Matched this with a California Cabernet. Dark berries, some hints of leather with some tannins. Another good pairing, and Valentine's is checked off. — a month ago
Nice Sangiovese from Montecucco. Dark berries, plums, chocolate. Grippy tannins but nice dinner finish. Very enjoyable. Montecucco is a relatively new wine region in Italy that was somewhat hard to find when I visited a few years ago because it wasn't on any maps. Good adventure and good value. @Gregory McCardle — 18 days ago
Got ahead of the Valentines Day foolishness, and fired up a nice dinner ahead of time. Matched up my scallops and sweet corn with an awesome Chardonnay from Foxtrot (stumpy vineyard). Partially oaked, it was well balanced. Fresh and full. Great pairing. — a month ago
Picked this up a few years ago in Chile and sort of forgot about it. Blackberry, raspberry with hints of leather and pepper. Smooth all round, some tannins kicking around and medium finish. Visited the winery, and they pretty much only make this wine. Great setting and friendly, albeit hungover tour guide. — 3 months ago
