Reviews and Ratings

Linda Mertes WSET 2 rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A full-bodied blend from the Okanagan Valley with Merlot leading the way. Dark berries and oak aromas- vanilla and cocoa. Well-balanced on the palate with a spicy finish. Pair with roast beef, steak and lamb.
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

A ripe and delicious expression of a big juicy Okanagan red. Major's Block is a robust and spicy blend of Shiraz and Merlot with a splash of Petit Verdot and Zinfandel adding further depth and texture to this crowd pleaser. Sourced from the south of the Okanagan Valley, this is a great example of big red wines See Ya Later Ranch produces at their picturesque Okanagan Falls winery. Enjoy over the next 5+ years with BBQ fare, braised dishes, or creamy mushroom risotto. Tasted February 2020. 90 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Delicious and a great price point for this BC VQA wine. Blended from 46% Shiraz, 45% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot, and 3% Zinfandel, there are aromas of black plum, cherry, mocha, oak and a hint of spice. Full bodied and smooth on the palate, with some medium tannins, and balanced acidity. Fruit is ripe and plush on the palate, and there is a hint of oak and spice on the finish. Enjoy with anything BBQ'ed from ribs, burgers, portobellos, or marinated flank steak.
From the Okanagan Valley, British Columbia, See Ya Later Ranch Major's Block 2016 is so easy to enjoy with its ripe blackberry, blueberry, soft dark plum, mocha and vanilla flavours smooth and silky on the palate. The 46% Shiraz, 45% Merlot, 6% Petit Verdot and 3% Zinfandel red wine blend goes down real easy. Lots of enjoyment on this wine -- on its own or with grilled lamb and bison burgers. - Community Wine Reviews
