I sift through the bad ones and present the good ones...
Wine: Signature Series Syrah
Notes: This is a full bodied red with mushroom, pepper and hints of cherry and plum on the nose. The flavours are a nice blend of cherry, butterscotch, oak, pepper and smoke. It's a very nice wine perfect for a relaxing evening debating global politics. I highly recommend it.
Wine: Pinot Auxerrois
Region: Okanagan Valley, BC
Notes: A very enchanting and delicious wine. The nose gives aromas of Melon, Peach, Floral notes, and Clove. The flavour is Peach, Pineapple, slight Minerality, and Honey Dew Melon. I highly recommend this fruit forward white for an evening spent lazily flipping through coffee table books that focus on obscure butterfly breeds.
Wine: Pinot Noir
Notes: Medium intensity aroma with Pepper, Cherry, and Blackberry. The flavour is similar with Cherry, Raspberry, hints of Vanilla and Pepper. It has a silky smooth texture and medium body. Perfect for a night of gazing up at the stars pondering the absurdities of life.
