Mission Hill 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve $24.99
Deep blackberry aromas, hints of tobacco, follow through to a full-bodied palate. Elegant and supple with excellent structure, this mouth-filling red is nicely balanced with rich tannins and toasty oak. Barrel fermented and aged in American and French oak for 13 months.

VERSUS

Township 7 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon $25.99
A stellar growing season produced rich, black fruit for a bold, full-bodied Cabernet.  Hints of black cherry, olive and dried herbs populate the nose and compliment a palate of cherry, cassis and lingering chocolate notes.

 

Cassini 2009 Maximus $33.90
MAXIMUS is about complexity, balance, elegance, character. This classic Bordeaux/Meritage style wine has intense aromas of black currant, black pepper, strawberry jam, vanilla, cocoa and tobacco. This full bodied wine finishes with a nice oaky balance, with a long lingering silky finish with soft and subtle tannins. Pairs well with, grilled lamb, beef tenderloin wrapped in bacon, Portobello mushroom stew, grilled steaks, bison or elk and premium dark chocolate.

VERSUS

Gray Monk 2009 Odyssey Meritage $34.99.
This full bodied wine is composed of the three traditional varieties, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc, all grown in the South Okanagan Valley. Aged in new French oak barrels, the result is flavours reminiscent of blackberry jam with a hint of vanilla lending it well to pairing with lamb and beef dishes.
