FLAT ROCK RIESLING 2016

6

VQA Twenty Mile Bench, Niagara Escarpment

TASTING NOTE: Niagara Riesling continues to

move from strength to strength as ever more

consistent, complex, intense examples, such as

this 2016 from industry leader Flat Rock, are

crafted. Floral, with superbly delineated notes

of lime, apple, pear and mineral and a fresh,

tangy character. Mouthwatering acidity

provides balance to the sweetness here. Just a

great wine, and a steal at the price. (Vintages

panel, March 2017)

ST. HUBERTUS RIESLING 2014

6

BC VQA Okanagan Valley

TASTING NOTE: The aerified funk is one of

thick, recalcitrant atmosphere and is joined

by a moment of fromage. Stone fruit and very

mineral tang juicy, condensed and weighty

... big and delicious if of a very specific style.

Acidity offers up a lambasting paradox of

clean coherence and the finish is a treat.

Drink 2016-2020. Score:

CABERNET SAUVIGNON 2016

Lodi

This wine is no stranger to long-time Vintages

customers, and it’s one that new customers

should get to know. It has cemented its place

as a go-to value option for California Cabernet

by simply being one of the most consistent

wines out there. A crowd-pleaser with broad

appeal, this rich wine will show impressive

dark fruit, cassis, vanilla and chocolate tones.

Perfect for grilled steaks and mushrooms.

PARIS VALLEY ROAD ZINFANDEL 2014

California

TASTING NOTE: Sourced from sites in Paso

Robles and southern Monterey County, this is

a well-crafted wine with exceptional broad

appeal. Aromas and flavours of blueberry pie,

strawberry, bumbleberry, cherry, raspberry,

leather and a touch of licorice make for a

wonderfully layered, complex wine. This is big,

juicy and proud Zinfandel, but it remains soft,

round and approachable. A real treat with fruit

so ripe that the wine – though dry – has an

almost off-dry taste profile. There is just so

much to like here, including the price.

PASO CREEK ZINFANDEL 2015

Paso Robles

TASTING NOTE: Paso Robles is to Zinfandel

as joy is to full: Zinfandel is this historic

region’s most famous variety. This one is

crafted in an approachable, crowd-pleasing

style, putting plenty of ripe, intense red fruit

front and centre. It has good depth and a nice

smoky edge. Juicy and fresh with excellent

balance. Well-made and well-priced, this will

be superb with grilled ribs with a spicy rub.
