36 day dry aged Rib Eye steaks on the BBQ were lovely with this Malbec. — 6 days ago
Tantalus has the oldest Riesling vines in the Okanagan Valley.
Light yellow colour and very sparkly.
A nose of nectarines, grapefruit, flint and citrus zest.
Amazingly crisp acidity with flavours of lime zest, Granny Smith apples, green melon and a boatload of minerals.
You can lay Tantalus Riesling down for 15 years....no problem. — 3 months ago

Deep, dark red in the glass. Big, rich, jammy nose of fig, black fruit, cracked black pepper, violets and wild herbs.
In the mouth, roasted meats, cassis, caramelized onion and cocoa.

Okanagan Valley Syrah is a well kept secret at an affordable price. — 6 months ago

Blend of Corvina. Corvinone, Cab Sauvignon and Cab Franc.
This wine is very versatile when it comes to pairing with food. Just enough fruitiness, just enough tannins and acidity not to over power.
Earthy, berries and violets on the nose. Great mouth feel with cherries, berries and herbs with an energetic freshness on the finish.
We had Japanese food with this wine .....katsu curry. Think plump schnitzel with mild Japanese curry on top.

Mostly Merlot with Cab Franc from Tuscany.....who wouldn’t like that?
Plum, cherry and dark chocolate notes on the nose.
There is an elegance here with firm tannins, blackberry, ripe currants, tar and olives. It has a bitter finish but not in a bad way.
I want to grill lamb and drink this wine.

2015 vintage. 90% Sangiovese with 10% Merlot. This is owned by Felsina since 1981. All hand harvested. Very muted nose at first but opened up after a few minutes.
Rich ruby red colour with black fruit, leather, tea and perfumed nose.
Medium bodied, nice acidity with flavours of red/tart/Rainer cherries and earthiness. The bit of Merlot adds a softness to this wine. It is very crushable and would pair amazingly with duck.

2010 vintage. Deep ruby red with a perfumed nose of black fruit, tobacco and cherry kirsch. Lots of secondary development.
Still bright and fresh with lively acidity and smooth grained tannins. Dark plums and cherries with underbrush and sandalwood. Tannins and acidity are in harmonious balance. Like a velvet glove in your mouth. Long finish lasting 2-3 minutes.
Very enjoyable. — 6 months ago
