Community Tasting Note

    February 2, 2019 - Wow loved this wine. For anyone who is unsure about BC reds. Dark purple in color. Notes of black currant, vanilla, dark chocolate, and light pepper on finish. Dry, med body, nice acidity, smooth tannins. Still young, many years left on this wine.

Was a very nice drinking wine, lots of fruit, but still lots of other notes, and was so enjoyable to drink. Not sure if it was just the night, but I would say this was the nicest BC red I have drank.
