Black Hills Estate Winery Nota Bene Black Hills 2009
Note: I publish batches of reviews that I call Good Values Wine Picks. These are from the regular section of the liquor store rather than the Vintages section, and tend to be lower priced and the most widely available of all wines. The last four reviews I did were: March 5, February 26, September 11 and July 26.

|Valerie Stride WSET ADV rated this wine as 4.6/5 with the following review:|
A scorching hot year in the Okanagan, but with a cool spring. There was good fruit set during the early summer and as a result, the grape berries did very well. A clean bouquet presents a developing wine with cherry, luscious raspberry, and resinous herbs like sage and rosemary. On the palate, this wine is fully dry with a chewy tannin structure. Silky caramel, mocha, cherry, plum, and blackcurrant will tickle your fancy! Cabernet Sauvignon 46%, Merlot 38%, and Cabernet Franc 16%. 14.1% abv. Complex, deep, a real show stopper! Decant prior to enjoying this libation!
