Almost undrinkable. Waited too long. But it was good and we finished the bottle, no way this would last another day.

Very light, lots of fruit and easy to drink. Price point bang on. Would not have wanted to pay more.
Red
I know this is a very low rating and probably undeserved but it was spoiled. Very vinagar, fizzy terrible. I would expect a 2018 to be on the edge but clearly we waited far too long to drink it. A shame really and all on us for not drinking a few years earlier.

This remains one of my all time favourite Pinot Noirs. Loads of fruit with a kiss of sweetness. I could drink an entire bottle in one go, just give me a straw.

Excellent. Lovely apple on the nose, rich and complex going down. A very nice surprise that this was still so drinkable being a 2013.

This was exquisite. Lovely lingering on the pallet, loads of fruit and beautiful balance with the sweetness. Wish we had more of this. Drank with Deb and Ed Easter sunder.

Amazing wine. Starting to loose its sugar but still a terrific wine. One more bottle to drink and we’d better get to it.

The was past its prime, but that wasn’t the wine’s fault, we were late drinking it. We could tell it was a big full bodied wine at its peak. Drank over two nights, taking a chance but it held up okay.
Red
This is okay. It’s just okay. Drinkable but works better with food.

It literally fell out of the fridge and hit the floor. Didn’t break, but there was much fizzing. I thought, yeah, its gone. I opened it, hesitantly tasted and damn, it was good.

Very drinkable. This wine is not pretending to be anything than what it is. A tad on the sweet side, good with roast chicken. Never mind the wine snobs, for the price this is a good quaff.

This was fantastic and really settled down to reveal all its wonderful secrets after being open for a while. Price point is excellent. However a word of caution, drink now as it is starting to loose its sugars.

Good for a BBQ, not over powering, or pushy, just there. I enjoyed it.

Used most of this for a beef stew. Quite thin and a bit flabby, I don’t think we are drinking this too early, its just not my cup of tea wine wise. I’m not very experienced with Rhone wines.

Very drinkable and not a bad wine for the price. A bit bricky in colour but nothing lost on the flavour.

Yeah, I like it. It was a bit drier than I expected, but the taste didnt suffer for it. The only bad thing was I drank the whole bottle inside of 2 hours. And I suffered for that. But I won’t diss the wine for my bad behaviour. I’d buy this again, but not for a long time.

A decent quaff for the price, had a little edge of sweetness, I’d buy it again.

The wine was gone, just vinegar. Too bad.

Wine was gone. No sugar, just vinegar. Unfortunate.

It opened up beautifully, it seemed like it was past its prime at first, it found its footing and was a very good wine. Beautiful deep rich flavour, nice balance, time only served this wine well.

Not a classic Pinot noir, this is an okanagan Pinot noir after all. Opened first night and it was good, but second and last night it really came into its own. The sugars were starting to go, but the lovely fruit was still present. Over all, a very nice wine, but if you have any, drink it now.

Damn I like this wine. Just a kiss of sweetness and loads of flavour. Tastes way better than the exceptional price of $20.

Still fabulous. Lots of fruit notes in the nose and on the palette. Crisp, dry not sweet at all. Lovely. Good finish. Colour is pale green with a big of gold.

A decent wine, not great, certainly better with food. An acceptable quaff. A tad on the sour side. If you want cheap and relatively cheerful, $11 is not a lot to spend for it.

This wine is f***ing awesome. Gorgeous balance, perfect fruit, good finish and the nose is making my eyes roll back in my head. I’m glad we’re drinking it. In my humble opinion, its at its peak. If you have any, don’t wait, drink now.

Lost sugar, flavour was incredible, big and rich, should have been drunk last year.

I would score this higher but its starting to loose its sugar, but is that the wine’s fault or mine for waiting this long. Lovely cherry and raspberry on the first taste, long finish and still quite tannic. Love Cedar creek wines, and this one is no exception.

Has lost its sugar, deep rich colour almost inky. Menthol and pepper on the palate, nice finish.

Always good. Just the right balance of sweet and sharp. Good finish and the price is right.

I was worried about this, the nose was good but the wine seemed off. But once it warmed up a bit it was delicious. Drank the whole bottle in one go. Very nice.

Found it. In the fridge. Of course it was. Where the hell else would it be. anyway enough that BS. This wine is fantastic. I may drink the entire bottle by myself. Crisp, dry and delicious.

UNFORTUNATELY THIS WAS GONE. ALL VINEGAR NO SUGAR. WHAT A DAMN SHAME. WHEN THEY SAID DRINK BY 2020 THEY MEANT IT.
