Nk’Mip Cellars Talon, 2011

026Not love at first sight, but lovely. We drank two bottles although only warmed to it when it had air, and a lot of it. Oak and plum and smoky notes with hints of vanilla.

 

A very modern wine. Blended as if to appeal to the largest crowd; nothing about it seemed old school or retro. I felt like I was in a Ligne Rosset showroom; all affected clean lines and manufactured elegance.  There was to this both satisfaction as well as some pretense.

 

Extremely food friendly, a truly accomplished BC blend, but not for the faint of heart at 14%. For the price, for a BC wine of this caliber, a no-brainer. Get a case and let it mellow for a spell.

 

Price: $23, and widely available at BC Liquor.

 

Market Liquidity: Imagine, a great BC red under $30. Who woulda thunk it?
