Lori scored this wine: 88/100
Wayne Gretzky winemakers are making sure that Canada is well covered to taste his wines! Not only are there wines made in Niagara, Ontario but the "Great One" has branched out to British Columbia's Okanagan!
This is an almost equally balanced dry blend of Cabernet Franc (55%) and Syrah (45%). On the nose there are notes of earth, menthyl, sour cherry, black pepper and black fruit that is fairly ripe. Flavours of sour cherry, black currant and that bite of black pepper. The tannins are smooth with medium acidity and a medium finish.
Pair with some bbq sauce slathered ribs and visions of travel to the beautiful Okanagan Valley! Tasted February 2021
