Their enthusiasm and positive energy came through in both their tweets and their reviews for these incredible BC wines (scroll down on the page for each wine to see their notes and scores):

Mission Hill Reserve Chardonnay 2010, BC VQA

Gray Monk Gewürztraminer 2011, BC VQA

Quails’ Gate Chardonnay 2011, BC VQA

Eau Vivre Pinot Noir 2008, BC VQA

Osoyoos Larose Le Grand Vin 2008, BC VQA

Mission Hill Quatrain 2009, BC VQA

I raise my glass to an incredible team!

Note: All of my reviews are done independently and are not paid for by wineries, wine agents or wine associations. Like other wine writers, I am occasionally asked to moderate an in-person panel or online discussion, like this one, and I may or may not be paid for my time to do so. But facilitating a discussion is entirely separate from my actual reviews of the wines, which are done separately and independently. Here’s how I review wines, including what my scores mean, my tasting notes and my review process.
