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€” 22 days ago

Blue Mountain

Reserve Okanagan Valley Pinot Noir 2017

As with previous vintages, the 2017 has a substantial mouthfeel for what is in all other respects a light style of pinot. At this young age the fruit is all-present, and I find the cherry and red plum more pronounced than raspberry this year. Look for the note of pink cotton candy crystals just getting going in the blower this time around too. Whispy. β€” a day 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€” 6 days ago

Meritage Blend 2016

This was the last of the ten wineries we visited. We were β€œdone”. We bought a few bottles and opened the first a while later and it was SO GOOD! Better than we remembered. This BC Bordeaux (Meritage) blend of Merlot, Cab Sauv, Malbec & Cab Franc. BC was impressive. β€” 2 days ago
