Tasting Notes

This was a featured wine in March's Wine Club package, 2019.

 

Tasting notes written by Tony Aspler.

 

Geographical Indication: VQA Okanagan Valley, BC
Vineyard: Fool’s Gold Vineyard
Cases Produced: 240

 

Appearance: Deep ruby in colour.
Nose: Spicy, blackberry nose with notes of cedar and new leather.
Palate: Medium- to full-bodied, juicy and fruity with blackberry and black cherry flavours and enough tannin to give a final grip on the palate.
Quality: Outstanding. Drinking well now, but will improve with a couple years’ cellaring.

 

Food Pairing: Sirloin steak with roasted asparagus and mushrooms, balsamic-glazed roasted brussels sprouts with bacon, garlic parmesan cauliflower steak, braised beef stew, Peruvian-style chicken thighs with grilled corn, seared Ahi tuna steak.
