Miriam scored this wine: 90/100

This light red wine is perfect for a dinner with friends and a perfectly BBQ'd tenderloin steak. We are visiting our good friends Devon and Gary in Kelowna (Wine Country) and this wine was Gary's choice...fabulous....but be warned...one bottle is not enough!

Heaven in a Bottle...once you taste this 'port like' dessert wine you will be spoiled for life. My choice for pairing would be chocolate, chocolate, chocolate....perhaps a chocolate souffl├ę (Brian our host at the Quails' Gate Tasting Room suggested this) or maybe a decadent chocolate lava cake! Please check my blog www.cookinguncovered.blogspot.com for a new recipe coming out soon to pair with this excellent wine.

Had the pleasure of Wine Tasting at the Quails Gate Winery In Kelowna, BC with the very excellent Brian (the Sommelier) as our host. We loved this crisp, white fruity Gew├╝rztraminer. Naturally we couldn't leave the winery without a few bottles of this delicious BC wine. I am going to pair this with my BBQ turkey burgers or my clear fish soup on a day when I am not in the mood for a complicated meal. Please go to my blog www.cookinguncovered.blogspot.com for these recipes and more.

A great house wine to have in your wine cupboard when extra guests arrive for dinner. This wine is only $21.99 here in BC and is perfect for the crock pot stew http://cookinguncovered.blogspot.ca/2013/04/beef-stew-slow-cooking-method-for-crock.html. or for a hearty soup with beef and greens (follow the links) http://cookinguncovered.blogspot.ca/2013/02/beef-prosciutto-greens-hearty-soup.html
