Assertive and heartwarming all at once. I would characterize this as rough around the edges and needing some lie time (but with a screw top the question of how or what will improve is a hot topic particularly when you tour the Okanagan and engage with the vintners). No reviewer would ever write it, but while this is a great red it’s not “fun”; it’s practical and well constructed and lovely to drink but lacking pizazz and charisma.
Price: A reasonable and (for BC wines) thrifty $30 at Marquis.
Market Liquidity: Close, like a wheelchair parking space, but also like a gimme in golf.
