Okanagan Valley, British Columbia

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. β€” 14 days ago

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

Blue Mountain

Estate Bottled Okanagan Valley Chardonnay 2016

Like licking the skin of an unopened lemon. If you like the texture and mouthfeel here, then also try the Reserve bottling. Always a nice creaminess with Blue Mountain without going overboard with the butterscotch or vanilla notes. Love Blue Mountain! β€” 10 days ago

Osoyoos Larose

Okanagan Valley Merlot Blend 2004

A magnum of 2004 Osoyoos Larose. 15 years old and still drinking perfectly. Rich, smooth and unctuous it paired beautifully with the braised rabbit risotto. β€” 21 days 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, gloves and anise. It is just past it’s peak but still holding well. Should drink within the next year. β€” a day ago

@ Trixie : Trying to convince visiting Mission Hill Family Estate won’t do it, use a shotgun for an immediate response.
