This is definitely one of my favourites from the Okanagan. Seems to be getting better each year. Cherry, blackberry, pepper. Tinge/ hint of nail polish, but in a very good way. Clear winner of our Syrah blind tasting against some Aussies, although they were cheaper. Saving a 2nd bottle in the cellar. The kids helped with the photo. — a month 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. — 16 days ago
A bit deeper and richer of a Pinot than I've had recently from the Okanagan. Different, but very nice. 🍒, blackberry, vanilla and a smooth finish. Easy drinking. Easily could have polished off a second bottle. We decanted for about an hour, or about as long as it took to put the kids to bed. — 2 months 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. — 25 days ago
I had never tried anything from these guys before, but this is a winner. Literally. It cleaned up at a number of blind tasting this year and did not disappoint. Dark cherry, blackberry, floral a bit of smoke. Long finish with smooth feel, but detectable tannins. — a month ago
