Reserve Okanagan Valley Merlot Blend 2016

9.1

This Okanagan Merlot from the prestigious Mission Hill winery is a regular here in Fernie BC. Approachable, structured , well balanced with notes of blackberry, plum and always smooth. It will not disappoint. Cheers πŸ·πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ β€” 20 days ago

Van Westen Vineyards

Vixen Pinot Gris Pinot Blanc 2018

I love the grigio from Van Westen, and the blend here with pinot blanc certainly brightens it up further but doesn't work for me with the extra sweetness. Pleasant, but I couldn't down more than a glass or two at a standup event. Still quality though different strokes for different folks. β€” 20 days ago

Kettle Valley

Malbec 2011

To be honest, the Malbec seems to be the least consistent of Kettle Valley's expressions. I find the variation wild between vintages of this stuff. The 2011 eight years after vintage has some graphite going on with perhaps some under-ripeness of fruit making an appearance, but the brambly blackberry fruit quickly gives way to a wave of blueberry here that works ok with the heavy dose of wood. It's weird to say, but would you say this is missing a tar note? β€” 4 days ago

Okanagan Valley Muscat 2018

Very refreshing with lots of tropical notes. Melon and crisp apples and pears. Would be a great patio wine if only the weather would cooperate. β€” 15 days ago

Raku Syrah Blend 2014

A very interesting unique blend of Syrah & Viognier. 2014 - awell aged, beautiful Naramata wine. The winemaker is a hoot - very colorful and informative. We loved our tasting and left with some to share back home. Good prices and worth a stop 🍷 Pairs well with chocolate and fruit. Perfect! β€” 21 days ago
