  • Bought this wine direct from Bill at the Winery. In the glass, it’s a deep garnet red. The nose is great and has a lot going. Med+ intensity and developing with aromas of black fruit, cherry, liquorice, fruit cake and a hint of mint, as well as a slight minerality. On the palate, the tannins are high and bit dry/woody. Intensity is not as high as the nose, but very fruit forward with lots of black cherry, plumb, some red fruit and blueberry accents and black pepper. However, there is also a somewhat bitter tealeaf/tobacco type accent that mars the finish. This is too bad, as the wine is excellent up until then. This settles down with some time in the glass, but it affects the final score for me.

  • slightly closed nose to start, with nice woody stems, on the palate beautiful togetherness, composed, with a blanace of fruit and woody vegetal notes that are in harmony, fruit with acid with vegetal wood stemmy notes, so elegant yet has some meat on its bone

  • This bottle was opened two nights ago at my wedding, but wasn't finished. It's drinking wonderfully tonight. It's got a luscious strawberry and cherry nose. The palate erupts with cherry, strawberry, dark chocolate and just the right amount of oak. The lengthy finish evolves from sweet cherry to an herby flavor, to smoke, and then back to a lovely candied fruit taste. The balance of fruit, alcohol, acid and tannin is perfect - everything is in its right place. This is outstanding wine at the three-year mark.

  • Fairview is one of the few BC wineries that does a great cab blend IMO. Two Hoots is not as good as the Bear but is still excellent. And great value. Soft fruits with balanced acidity and a nice finsih. Drinking well now but has potential to improve with time.
