Reviews and Ratings

Gwen Barton rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Black raspberry and menthol aromas. Bold flavours of dark fruit with notes of violet and black pepper. Smooth, rich and warm Bordeaux style blend. Pair with BBQ burger topped with grilled mushrooms and blue cheese. Tasted July 2017
Rachelle O'Connor rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Hailing from British Columbia this blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (80%) and Merlot (20%) is very fruit forward - lots of plum, blackberry and black cherry, dark chocolate and vanilla undertones. Perfect wine for grilled steaks on the BBQ.
Wineboy rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

From the stellar 2014 Vintage for B.C. reds, comes this example. Good choice for those that love the more herbacious and veggie aromas and flavours in reds. Aromas replay on the palate.
Dirty Laundry Winery is in the Summerland and Peachland zone of the Okanagan Valley. This is a fun little winery and their Merlot is brimming with cherry fruit and spice with grippy, structural tannins. The winery suggests coupling it with game meats like bison burgers or elk tenderloin. - Community Wine Reviews
