John Skinner, Bordeaux-based consultant Alain Sutre, and Michael Bartier have come together to produce exceptional wines on the Skaha Bench, which I believe to be the best terroir in Canada. Red Icon has the unique superior balance of top notch Bordeaux, while showing exactly what Canadian terroir is capable of — cult status. You’ll find flavours of dreamy cassis and plum, seductive firm flesh, and a touch of smoke.
Painted Rock Estate Winery Ltd. Red Icon Cabernet Blend 2008, VQA, Okanagan Valley, BC, Canada: A gorgeously rich nose of fleshy dark fruit, violets and cedar smoke. Elegant with lifted mid-palate flavours, then a clean, long finish that leaves you wanting more. Full-bodied, but not heavy. This wine was aged for 18 months in new French oak. Surely one of Canada's best producers. Drink: 2011-2021. 284190 14.30% XD 750 mL $55.00 Score: 95/100. January 3, 2012 Full Review
