Mission Hill Family Estate

Reserve Okanagan Valley Merlot 2020

When in the Great White North, one eats poutine and Alberta beef and drinks bold reds from the Okanagan Valley recommended by the friendly cashier. Brings to mind Columbia Valley Merlot, but on steroids in terms of the concentration of the color and intensity of the tannins (rustic, dusty), flavors and aromas reflecting the high, dry dessert UV intensity and long growing season sunlight hours (still light here in Canmore after 10pm). More dark fruit (blackberry, black currant, black plum—some raisened/craisen notes, but mostly ripe and fresh) and herbal character (menthol, thyme, resin) than I normally find in Merlot that makes this wine really intriguing and distinctive. I think I’ll have a second glass… — 3 months ago

Bell Wine Cellars

Clone 6 Unfiltered Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

Dry with light oak, medium tannins, and high blackberry notes. Aged 8 years to develop a pleasant syrupy texture, but could be aged further to cut the spiciness if you are looking for a smoother sip. — a month ago

Château La Mission Haut-Brion

Graves Red Bordeaux Blend 1966

Another great btl of this wine showing the classic La Mission nose. A wine that I have had the pleasure of drinking more than 7 cases over the last 15 yrs. The wine has barely budged & has been fully mature & holding at its prime since I opened my 1st btl. Showing red & black fruits, cedar, leather, tar, smoke, licorice, balsamic & graphite are just some of the notes. A wine that you will still taste & think of after you finish the btl. — 2 months ago
