We did not understand this wine. We were baffled by the weight, stunned by the attack, left listless by the brashness of the blend, and confused by its identity. The Similkameen is awash in wonderful wine, you almost could do no wrong. Or so we thought. The 40% Merlot is like a chimera, the Cabernet Franc the Penn to the blend’s Teller. I don’t think we’ve drunk a more unappealing and mixed up BC red in years. Enough said.
Price: $28 as Save-On.
Market Liquidity: Did I say “enough said” already?
