Black Swift Vineyards

Desert Valley Vineyard Cabernet Franc 2014

A spectacular Canadian Cabernet Franc from The Okanagan. Dark ruby colour in the glass with a intensely aromatic nose of coffee, cocoa, cola & black fruit. The palate is dry, with excellent structure, substantial acidity and hints of bell pepper, chili pepper, raspberry sauce and slight wet gravel finish. A perfect representation of how amazing Cab Francs can be from Canada. Paired with barbecue chicken thighs, asparagus and scallions. — 17 days ago

@P A @Trixie Yes, our Canadian Cab Francs are really taking root. 😉 The vine really seems to love our Northern terroir in both the Okanagan and Niagara Peninsula! Cheers! 🍷

Zero Issue Brewing

Nemesis IPA

P A
9.5

Nemesis IPA by “Zero Issue Brewing” with its intoxicating aroma, intense grapefruit, passionfruit and citrus notes is an absolute stunner. 7.3 alc/vol. But that wasn’t the star of the night out in Calgary with Mrs A. We stumbled into the Charbar Restaurant featuring a culinary blending of Argentine wood-fired grilled entrees, and quiet Spanish and Italian notes. We shared a porterhouse steak from Alberta beef which maybe the best that we have ever had. Mitch the manager, the bartender Andrew, and the wait staff Hillary, Patrick and Shannon are the best. When in Calgary the Charbar is a must! The beer is a 9.0 and the Charbar is a 10.0. Cheers 🍻🇨🇦 — a month ago

Laughing Stock Vineyards

Portfolio Merlot Blend 2012

Laughing stock and specifically portfolio remains one of my favourite BC wines. It’s composed of 45% Merlot, 25% Cab Sav, 22% Cab Franc, 7% Malbec, 1% petit Verdot. The 2012 vintage is still holding well. Dark plums, cherries, raspberries. medium earthiness, mild cigar box followed by red peppers spices, cloves and anise. It is just past it’s peak but still holding well. Should drink within the next year. — 3 days ago

Great wine, and I'd love to try some of the older ones. I have some after 2012.. Cheers 🍷

@AgeyFixey agree! Had a good stock of the 2006 vintage (finished last year) which maintained its structure extraordinarily well, better than the 2012.
