Curated Wine Box - Red
50th Parallel Pinot Noir 2016
A full-bodied wine from a dry vintage in the Central Okanagan Valley that first shows off fully developed flavors of dark red fruits like ripe Staccato cherry, black raspberry, and blackberry. Dried rosemary and sage, saffron, and truffle explode to take over the mid palate blend seamlessly with earthy minerality. A fresh, vibrant and poised Pinot Noir.
Church & State Meritage 2017
On the nose dark red in colour, the wine opens with intense sweet black cherry and black currant aromas with hints of cocoa and vanilla. On the palate, the wine is incredibly full, rich and seductive. A symphony of black-fruited flavours flood the senses and compliment the incredibly silky, rich mouthfeel and fresh, cleansing acidity.
Sandhill Small Lot Sangiovese 2016
A ruby colour with a developing bouquet of smoky cedar, red cherry, fresh herbs such as sage and thyme, tobacco and hints of licorice. An extra-dry, medium to full-bodied wine with silky tannins and moderate acidity. Flavours of cedar, cherry, spice and leather mingle on the palate. The lingering finish shows notes of spice and red currant.
Painted Rock Cabernet Franc 2018
Aromas of black cherry, bramble, and tobacco. Bright acidity on the palate with smooth tannins and further notes of ripe plum, cedar and liquorice linger for a lengthy finish.
Black Market Syrah 2017
Full-bodied with a luscious mouth feel, the tannins are lifted by a hint of acidity. Aromas of blueberry, blackberry and a bit of smoke are followed on the palate by savoury notes of black olive, clove and smoked bacon. The wine lingers with the hallmark pepper notes on the long finish.
