With air and time exceptional flavour, vanilla, black cherry, a woody smoke and a very forward creme de cassis. Hard not to adore. “Bordeaux” style blend. Yummy. Yet another provocative red from the Similkameen (our favourite vineyard a few years back was Seven Stones which, ironically or not, we discovered in a restaurant in old Montreal). However, and at the risk of this becoming a boring blog theme, stingingly, stinkingly alcoholic. Sort of like a hot jock in high school: Not so hot in real life. Afterwards we wondered whether there was too much show? We really had a bomb from this vineyard a while back (see here for the review) but this came through.
