Black Hills Estate Winery Viognier, Okanagan Valley BC
Readers rated this wine:
Opulent, juicy, concentrated.
Expect rich aromas of peach puree and mango, ginger alongside other exotic spices, lime, honeysuckle and earthier forest floor/mushroomy undertones. The palate is equally plush and weighted with creamy honey, exotic spices and tropical fruits, but buoyed by juicy citrus. Excellent concentration and length and liveliness.
Pair: halibut, roast chicken, Moroccan dishes or a thin-crust caramelized onion and soft blue cheese pizza.

Cassini Cellars Reserve Chardonnay, Okanagan Valley BC

Fragrant, creamy, rich.
The reserve Chardonnay is rich and fragrant with acacia flowers, pear compote, smoked spices, honey and vanilla aromas. The palate is an echo of the nose; creamy weight, gutsy flavours and a long spicy finish. Excellent structure and balance make this is a serious contender for your new favourite premium Chardy.
Pair: smoked cheeses, roast turkey or creamy fettuccine Alfredo.

Gray Monk Chardonnay 'Unwooded', Okanagan Valley BC
Readers rated this wine:
Zippy, fresh, value
Bold peachy aromas are layered with pretty notes of vanilla, pears in honey, tangerine and freesia blossoms. It is zippy, has a kiss of sweetness to really pop the fruit on the palate, and is lively. A great everyday sipper with good persistence.

A wonderful repeat performance of the Reserve Chardonnay from JoieFarm.

St. Hubertus Frizzante Rose, Okanagan Valley BC
Readers rated this wine:
Fragrant, spritzy, tangy.
A lightly bubbly (frizzante) rose, which dances on your tongue. It offers up fragrant notes of peaches, strawberries and orange blossoms with earthier notes of cedar chips and rhubarb. It is tangy and faintly spicy, has a pristine character and leans on the drier side of the fence.
Good weight and concentration with enough backbone to stand up to heartier dishes; turkey, chicken, oily fish, but also perfect for spicier cuisines.

Cassini Cellars 'Collector's Series' Maximus, Okanagan Valley BC
Readers rated this wine:
Second review:
Savoury aromas of smoked meat and black fruit (plum and berries), peppery spices and bittersweet chocolate with undertones of roasted herbs, molasses and dried cherry. The palate follows suit - savoury and dark with plenty of spiced dark chocolate mocha and earthy flavours. A concentrated wine with good length.

This Okanagan Bordeaux-style blend is comprised of 48% Cabernet Sauvignon, 39% Merlot, 12% Cabernet Franc and 1% Malbec and I think that this vintage's addition of Cabernet Franc makes it even better than last year.
A luscious fruit bowl of black currents, plums and black cherries are layered with chocolate and spice, vanilla liqueur and coffee aromas.
Wonderful structure on the palate is the base for concentrated dark fruit, green olives, mocha and toasted oak flavours. Smoothly textured and lengthy with roasted coffee and spice flavours lingering on the finish.
Bravo!

Painted Rock Merlot, Okanagan Valley BC
Readers rated this wine:
Smoked, savoury, earthy.
I've been reviewing Painted Rock for a decade, and even though they were impressive from the onset, as the vines get older the wines have international attention, thanks in part to international winemaker and viticulturist, Alain Sutre. The Merlot was matured 18 months in 30% new French oak barrels,
Expect smoked plums, dark cocoa, toasted spices and leather aromas. Those bittersweet flavours are equally revealed in the mouth; dark plums and wild berries, savoury and earthy spice notes, espresso and tealeaf flavours dominate. It still has a brooding character, it seems to be the most earthy and aloof wine of the bunch.

Tinhorn Creek Cabernet Franc, Okanagan Valley BC
Readers rated this wine:
Savoury, tangy, textural.
Cabernet Franc and Tinhorn Creek, invariably intertwined.
Always a solid; this vintage doles out tangy red berries, brown spices, roasted bell peppers, fleur de sel and smoked meat aromas. The palate is sweet, smoky and savory as well; wild berries, bittersweet cocoa and spice flavours dominate. It also has great levity and fine textural tannins with a slick finish.
Pair: Grilled sausages or grilled portobello mushrooms with blue cheese, burgers or rich tomato ragu pasta.
Pairs great with Gone Crackers Blue Cheese & Cracked Pepper

Township 7 Syrah, Okanagan Valley BC
Readers rated this wine:
Succulent, muscular, balanced.
I think this wine perfectly illustrates the potential of Syrah in BC - this vintage it is both classic and succulent.
The nose is especially pungent; notes of bacon fat and smoked brown spices, leather and espresso, toasted oak and bittersweet cocoa reveal a core of wild black berries. On the palate however, the fruit leads the charge; black berries, smoked meat, dark mocha and savoury spice flavours appear. It has a spicy and muscular countenance but bright acidity adds levity.
