Black Hills Estate Winery Nota Bene 2003
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: September 11, July 26, September 12 and March 7.

|Valerie Stride WSET ADV rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
Luckily veraison had hit before the big forest fire in the Okanagan this year. This is one of the most astounding wines I have ever had the chance to try from the interior, and it is unique! Still a solid garnet colour, this wine has the potential for good ageing. Medium intensity on the bouquet, this developing wine is different from the other Nota Bene vintages because of its smokey, spicy character. Sage, peppercorn, and gamey notes predominate in the wine, but in a way that allows notes of reduced balsamic-drizzled red fruits to come through. On the palate, you'll enjoy a medium body and medium tannin-leveled wine with smoke, chicory, meatiness, thyme, sage, and pepper. This wine is elegant and refined. 46% Cabernet Sauvignon, 34% Merlot, 20% Cabernet Franc, 14.5% abv.
