Natalie's Score: 90/100
Smokey, coffee campfire on the nose: perfect for telling ghost stories under a starry night sky. Fleshy black fruit and shows on the finish. Pair with childhood memories.
Meritage food pairings: roast chicken paprika with onion and herb stuffing, onion pie, roast bresse chicken.
Harmonious Hard Cheese Wine

|Courtney Flood rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:|
This brooding wine from BC is dark in a good way... smoky and concentrated berry aromas, cedar bark, dried oregano, anise and black pepper. Pair with slow - smoked meats.
|Donna Hargrove rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Hailing from the Okanagan Valley, the deep ruby red greets the nose with hints of vanilla and currants. Pepper and a slight green apple on the palate, follows through to the finish with a lingering dry finish. This would great paired with a tomato based dish.

A beautiful blend but one that needs more time. Solid tannins currently hide some great depth of ripeness and complexity. 2019-2025
|Olivier de Maisonneuve rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
The nose reminded me of an hungarian chicken paprika dish,shared with good friends around a big table. The palate is silky and fruit forward. Not overly long,but easy to savour. Ripe tannins, good acidity make for food like pasta with ragu sauce.
|Sylvain Segard rated this wine as 81/100 with the following review:|
Medium ruby. Black currant, flowery, vanilla, mint, cedar aromas. Medium-plus tannins. Sour, green stem, cedar box, pepper taste. Dry long gripy finish.
|Douglas McMillan reviewed this wine as follows:|
Smoky black cherry, vanilla, a little earthiness, and dried herbs. The taste is inky dark fruit, a touch of tannin, and good acidity.
|R&D stands for "Research and Development," and is a nod to the Culmina Family Estate Winery's experimental approach to winemaking. The name is also homage to Culmina co-owner Don Triggs and his twin brother, Ron as their pictures as boys are on the label. This blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc grapes. ?
