Another Okanagan wine that we enjoyed when we lived in Vancouver. A friend brought this on a drive south last year.

Was enjoyin' our company too much to pay close attention to the wine details, but TNs nonetheless: very pleasant aromas of red fruit, smoke & hint of leather; clear, ruby color; med. bodied w/ raspberry, smoke & spice on the palate & w/ balanced acidity & drying tannins just before the finish-with-a-smile. Label said "aging potential 3-5 yrs" but this one will likely go another couple.

Very enjoyable drink with grilled, dry rubbed country pork ribs, mixed potato/sweet potato fries & green salad.
