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.
Painted Rock Estate Winery Ltd. Cabernet Sauvignon 2009 Wine Review
Tastes distinctly of B.C. yet comparable to top-tier Bordeaux (but a fraction of the price). This country is lucky to have a flagship wine like this. Classic aromas of blackberry, cassis and blackcurrant with a judicious use of oak. This wine spent 18 months in 95% new French oak. 4.7/5 Cabernet Sauvignon food pairings: charbroiled meats with a peppercorn sauce or a heavier tomato-based stew like ratatouille.

The rich, dark red colour of this Cabernet is indicative of there being plenty of character from start to finish. Roasted red bell peppers, blackberries and eucalyptus highlight the aromatics, with many ‘forest floor’ characteristics being evident on the palate, red and black currants, mulberry, clove plus hints of tobacco and cedar. Big and confident, this wine has a touch of spice, a good dose of minerality and firm tannic structure.
