Spectacular! Full-bodied, rich, deep and delicious with layers of black fruit desire. Smooth texture unfolds to a long finish. This will do well in the cellar, but why wait?

|Valerie Stride - WSET ADV rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:|
A cooler year in the Okanagan, but Black Hills did well! Deep ruby colours entrance you into the creamy black cherry nose, cassis heaven, and chorus of tobacco, vanilla, and toast. Firm tannins stand proud on the palate, and this medium bodied wine is sure to last in the cellar. Drinking now, however, you can enjoy black fruits, thyme, chocolate, and vanilla spice. Very well balanced for such a young wine, this vintage will definitely hold its own for years to come. 50% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot, and 10% Cabernet Franc. Welcome to the Okanagan's potential.
|Aromas of chocolate, star anise, spicy pepper, raspberry and cloves come|
forth on the nose. On the palate there is great weight and nice tannin intensity.
is gives way to avours of mocha, cherry cola, coee and chocolate with a
subtle hint of smoky leather and cigar box. is is a very versatile food pairing
wine that would go well with grilled red meats or beef carpaccio. All in all
2010 was a great vintage for our Nota Bene with very ripe fruit, thus enabling
this wine to show a wonderful complexity.”
