Have previously purchased this wine many times, and plan to do so again. It's a $20 bottle here in SK, and I've been consistently impressed through each different experience -- new qualities of this wine are brought out with each different pairing. Unfortunately I can't remember precisely what all those pairings were now, but it's balanced well between oak, acidity, spice and fruit flavouring.
