I really enjoy the fruity taste and aromas. This one I will buy again for sure
Lori Kilmartin - WSET3 Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

This is a blend of Merlot, Petite Verdot and Shiraz, Cabernet and Pinot Noir from BC that would pair with a lot of different foods from appetizers to pizza to steak. Easy drinking with aromas of smoke and dark red fruit; black plums and blackberry and some black pepper that follows through on the taste. Medium tannins and a medium finish. Tasted January 15, 2017.
Bill Wright Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Medium cherry and spice, while short is pleasant

Diabolica is a crowd-pleasing fruit forward Okanagan Valley BC VQA, Canadian desert-climate red blend of Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz and Petit Verdot. Smooth and fruity, this wine is easy to enjoy with soft and supple fruit, low tannins, low acidity. Enjoy now.
