2001Blue MountainPinot Noir 4A232  87 Gismondi
A slightly reductive garlic scented nose blows off after a few minutes in the glass to reveal plenty of black cherry fruit, smoky oak and saddle leather. This is full flavoured pinot with spicy creamy vanilla flavours streaked with strawberry and cherry fruit flavour. A delicious mid-palate stalls in the finish but thatís not unusual for young Blue Mountain pinot noir. Time in the bottle will smooth that out.

2000Burrowing OwlPinot Noir  25    
website: This big, full flavoured wine displays the best of Pinot Noir characteristics - full body and rich flavours combined with smoothness and elegance. A deep, complex bouquet marries ripe berry aromas with toasty oak to produce nuances of cherry, raspberry, cola, mahogany, leather and chocolate which are echoed on the palate ornamenting the deep chocolate cherry flavours. Its rich intensity is made elegant by velvety tannins and smooth mouthfeel. An outstanding Pinot Noir.
Vancouver Sun Sep 18, 02: Good luck finding this. Smoky bacon fat and pepper highlight the nose, while dried cherry fruit marks the flavour. It's drier than usual, but it makes up for it in richness and alcohol. A good wine, but it's becoming increasingly irritating to find
2000Burrowing OwlMerlot 20251  Gold All Cdn Champ
Harvested over 23 brix. Aged 12 months in a combination of French and American oak barrels. 2900 cases bottled March 2002. Dark color, concentrated flavors with hints of black tea, blueberry, and mint. Soft, approachable finish.
2001Burrowing OwlCabernet Franc 5272   
An incredibly complex bouquet features black cherry fruit complemented by hints of mahogany, chocolate, mint, honey, leather and tobacco. Big and smooth bodied with full blackberry fruit flavours ornamented by many of the same nuances as the bouquet together with cola and licorice. A truly beautiful, complex, mouthfilling Cabernet Franc.
2001Burrowing OwlMerlot 5251   
Deep berry bouquet with caramel, coffee and chocolate highlights. Outgoing, vibrant blackberry flavour profile with jammy richness. Smooth and complex on the palate. A very varietal Merlot through a long flavourful finish. Well structured, combining heft as well as finesse and framed by the mellowest of tannins.
2002Burrowing OwlMerlot 42610   
2002Burrowing OwlChardonnay 6 pack204   
Fresh bouquet of peach, pear and subtle tropical fruit aromas. Smooth and well balanced with generous peach, pear, apple flavours and hints of lime and mandarin orange through a long finish. A classy fruit-driven Pinot Gris with subtle development and elegance

2000MerryVale Vinyards Merryvale - Juliana VineyardsSauvignon Blanc Fridge351   
Our Sauvignon Blanc bottlings are meant to showcase delicate but complex varietal character, with just a hint of toasty French oak serving as a complement, not the focus, of the wine. To preserve that delicate character, malolactic fermentation was prevented and, while the wine is on its lees during its time in the barrels, those lees have not been stirred. This wine was blended from the lots most expressive of ripe yet lively Sauvignon Blanc, tempered with a little rich Semillon, all from Juliana Vineyards.
1999MerryVale Vinyards ProfileBlend OL 2003 Case1501  WS93
WS: Excellent balance and depth of flavor to the Cabernet blend, with mocha-laced oak wrapped around ripe currant and blackberry fruit. It's seamless, and reveals extra flavor dimensions and elements of finesse that draw you back for another sip.

2001Mission HillCabernet Merlot 3A161  81 HOW
Fairly decent fruit intensity with mostly plum and cherry flavours. Quite jammy and mellow. Oaky with a slight licorice aftertaste. Turns herbaceous after extended aeration. A little light in terms of its body. Fairly decent drinking wine at an affordable price

Rich flavors of dark berry and cherry are balanced against a wiry backbone of fine tannins and acidity in this outstanding Shiraz, gaining momentum on the finish. Impressive for its intensity and elegance

1999Pierre SparrGewurztraminer  25   WS84
Rich, yet there's a hard edge of bitterness underlying the overall presentation. The flavors are litchi and grapefruit.
2000Poplar GroveCab Merlot 2352   
Toasty French oak on the nose with intense bouquet of chocolate, coffee and all-spice. Meaty mid-palate with sage and earth notes to compliment the blackberry and cherry fruit. Very extracted but European in style and texture with fruit and oak tannins providing considerable grip. The Merlot contributes fruit and finesse while the Cabernet Franc give the wine backbone and structure. It has a long warm finish. Released December 2003. About 235 cases made.
2001Poplar GroveCabernet Franc 10291   
Dense and opulant, the wine has currant and cherry pie aromas on the nose. The palate has ripe plum, cassis and blackberry flavours with leather and earthy spice. The toasty oak is round, smooth and fleshy. Cab Franc is typically a structured wine and as such there are substantial tannins and firm acidity on the finish. Bold perfumes, depth and length of flavour with balanced integration of fruit and oak mean that this wine will complement simple and complex meals. Cellaring potential is unlimited. If you can, try one now and then put the rest down for five years.

1998Quail's Gate Estate Winery Chardonnay Limited ReleaseChardonnay 6171  WA87
delicious mix of mild peachy, citrus fruit with just enough light butter, spice and honey. Medium bodied, slightly creamy with a firm, tidy finish. Good to very good length
2000Quail's Gate Estate Winery OVFMarechal Foch 2401   
Bronze Oakanagon Festival. A rich, full flavoured wine, it has aromas of dark chocolate and dusky berry with a smooth yet subtle finish. The Stewart Family recommends trying the OVF Reserve with duck confit served on a bed of organic spring greens or filet mignon with a truffled mushroom ragout.
1997Quinta Do Vale D. Maria Rio TortoPort OL 2003 Case 401   
2000Quinta do NovalPort OL 2003 Case 1041  RP 92, WS 95-100
Seldom does the regular Vintage Port from Quinta do Noval score at exactly the same level as the legendary, tiny production Noval Nacional.But it did in 2000. I just couldnít see much difference when I tasted the two blind. So it means a great opportunity to buy a terrific young Vintage Port at a relatively good price. The 2000 Noval shows fascinating aromas of crushed fruit, tar and wet earth that turns floral and aromatic. Itís full-bodied and medium-sweet, with chewy, velvety tannins and a long finish. Yet it grips your mouth with all the structure you expect in a young Port...96." Wine Spectator Weekly 2/03

2001Stag's Leap Stags Leap Wine Cellars ARTEMIS Cabernet SauvignonCabernet 1721  83
Lean and supple, with an earthy, leathery streak running through the sour cherry and earthy currant scents. Tasted three times, with two bottles marred by a strong presence of Brettanomyces. Drink now. 32,500 cases made
1998TedeschiAmarone 1502   
Strong, rounded and warm structure. This is a well-balanced wine. After-taste confirms the notes in the bouquet.
1995Tommasi Della Valpolicella ClassicoAmarone 1401  WE94
The ample aromas of red-currants layered on top of classic prune, plum, tobacco, cedar-box carry through nicely onto the palate with the addition of licorice and some strawberry. Complex flavours and fine tannins nicely balanced lead to an excellent finish with restrained heat
2001Turkey FlatShiraz 5 1   
1998Villa di Geggiano Villa di GeggianoChianti 1351   
With an extra degree of refinement and an even longer finish, this Riserva would repay two or three yearsí keeping
