Bright red cherry and plum flavours, spice, soft tannins, nice texture, good length, quite approachable. Elegant enough to pair with white meats, but enough structure and depth to match with lamb.
Fermented blackberries (100%) and fortified alcohol (to 18%) result in an intensely satisfying dessert wine. Explosive blackberry aromas and flavours embrace its spicy richness and well-balanced sweetness (60 g/L). What a wonderful accompaniment to chocolate, blue cheese or vanilla ice cream.
From one of the Fraser Valley’s newest wineries. Floral and stone fruit on top before a mouth-filling, quite generous palate with apple and peach notes and a little clove before a lengthy end.
A mid-weight Franc with raspberry, dark cherry, tobacco, violets, graphite and coffee. Medium length, fresh acid and solid tannins. Now to 2020.
The '08 Tignanello is more linear than the richer '07. Toast, graphite, morello cherry, humus, cassis, mocha and a slight herbal edge are supported by Sangiovese’s acidity and Cabernet Sauvignon’s tannins. It will age well for a decade.
Golden straw colour with a green tint, this Chardonnay offers an expressive nose of red apple and melon with a floral note and toasty oak; full and rich on the palate, it sustains well thanks to its vibrant acidity.
Potent and driving VA opens this dense Cabernet Sauvignon from Alto Maipo. Roasted onions, roasted meats, rubber, shellac, with soft tannins lined by grippy and gritty sides to a warming finish. There is a bright, welcome lift of acidity. Could I tell this was Cab Sauv right away? Not really. Could I tell it was old-school Chile? Si. Best with your grilled meats BBQ
