After trying the Painted Rock Cab Franc, had to try another wine from the vineyard and naturally gravitated to the Syrah. Smells musky, herbaceous with mega spice. Taste; right off the bat, heavy, dominant peppery spice with mild cloves and black liquorice. At the beginning there is some dark cherry and stewed plums that is short lived. The spice dominates all phases of the wine. Finish ends somewhat abruptly. Required about 30-45 min to fully develop. I still prefer the Laughing Stock Syrah but this is right up there. Overall, great wine! — 2 days ago
Love this wine! Smooth, light. Good with a Greek salad or in its own. — 6 hours ago
2016 Cabernet Franc from BC aged in French oak for 18 months. First time trying this, and had no expectations. Front loaded black liquorice, very herbaceous, bell pepper, hints of clove, musky tobacco and mushrooms. Well balanced acidity. Quite happy with this find — 4 days ago
Very impressive Canadian wine. Merlot centric with amazing colour, broad texture and herbal notes. Will age beautifully. 93+ — 6 hours ago
Let’s take this glass on a magical journey!
The wine has been aerated to a 3 hour aeration.
Now, pour a little red in that glass and begin to swirl it around. As you swirl, put your nose up to the glass and take an inhale. Ah yes, that smell must be heaven on earth. You will smell notes of oak and this may be weird but also notes of delicious brand new rubber. Wow that was definitely pleasing to the senses.
Okay, let’s get to sipping the wine now and continue this magical journey of the senses. Take a sip and swish it around the mouth then drink. A mouthwatering sensation will follow your sip, along with many fruitful flavours and a warming blissful feeling down to your stomach.
My favourite taste about the wine is definitely the American and French oak in which the wine was aged in for 20 months. I hope that this experience is just as blissful for yourself as it has been for me. Enjoy! — a day ago
This is a nice rose with true tartier side, darker. — 6 days ago
