Community Tasting Note

  • rexmerlot wrote: 92 points

    March 12, 2014 - Clear dark purple in color. Clean nose of black fruit and vanilla. Dry, med acidity, med+ body, smooth tannis, big black fruit, vanilla, and spice on palate. Nice finish. Wow, this is a great wine. It is expensive, but truly is a comparable red to hotter climates. This wine will change your ideas of BC reds. Once again Bill sets the bar for other BC winemakers.

    I'd be curious to see how it would be after a day. It was great.
