Château Villars

Fronsac Red Bordeaux Blend 2011

Very similar to the Château Oliver. Major difference is that this wine opens up with more bold dark fruit which is quite velvety. Transitions to a delicious blend of peppers, varied spices and eucalyptus in the middle and end. Great depth and lasting taste that blended well with our Fois gras and cheeses. — 4 years ago

La Frenz

Rockyfeller Vyd Naramata Bench Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

Many Naramata producers source their cab grapes off-bench from down Oliver way and while I admire La Frenz for putting together a fully made-in-Naramata package, this wine is somewhat green. That brings out more herbal notes which I can get behind as interesting to a point. A cool weather cab is hard to endorse for elegance though. I don't know if the appeal here will be universally appreciated, but definitely a product of its terroir, and good for La Frenz for embracing local. — 3 years ago

River Stone Estate Winery

Corner Stone Okanagan Valley Merlot Blend 2015

Well balanced southern BC red blend from Oliver. Didn’t know anything about this wine while drinking. Nor did those I was drinking with. It was a gift. I commented that it was easily the quality of a $30 bottle. You won’t find it in the states and lucky to find in Canada for that matter. Vineyard produces limited number of cases. They state their 2016 vintage at 500 cases. If you do find it, BUY IT! — 3 years ago

Bodegas Montecillo

Gran Reserva Selección Especial Tempranillo 1981

Mogen Rioja som fått ligga till sig på flaska i decennium. Doften är mäktig. Plommon, mörka bär, oliver och vanilj. Smaken har tydlig ålder och den initiala fatlagringen känns. Mogna plommon, svart te, dill, grön paprika, kakao, örter, anis. En fint avslut med antydan av tanin. — 4 years ago
