Katarina reviewed this wine:

2012 Vintage. Beautiful balance of oak and fruit. Baked apple and tropical fruit on the nose. Creamy and buttery on the palate with more baked apple, pear, vanilla.. Delicious and a favourite.

Katarina reviewed this wine:

Brand new vintage of this wine. Earthy, blackberry, cherry and raspberry, tobacco on the nose. Palate bursts with flavours of cloves, raspberry, cherry, strawberry, spice. Light oak and soft tannin balance the fruity notes and add balance to the wine. Could age for 3-5 years, but also ready to drink now. $25 a bottle and worth it for a BC Pinot Noir.

Katarina scored this wine: 90/100

I must have encouraged most of my customers to try this wine at some point. A favourite for our staff as well as one of the best selling reds in our store. This wine is a blend of Merlot, Petit Verdot, Malbec and Syrah and perfect for any lamb dish that ever existed. Coffee, pepper, spice, plum and cherry on the nose and palate. Tannins are there to balance all that fruit and possibly some ageing potential.. if you have the patience. Otherwise, just open, pour and enjoy.
