Red Rooster Winery Red Bordeaux Blend Okanagan Valley Vqa Cabernet-Merlot 2010

Member Review by zufrieden:

This wine was rated 91 points by Wine Access - a reputed Canadian wine magazine. The nose is very oak-heavy on opening, but after waiting 30 minutes and using the Venturi, some cassis and blackcurrent becomes evident with oak much less prominent. On entry, there are hard, spicey tannins but good fruit. Some nutmeg, plum and blackberry on the palate for a medium finish overall. Not much finesse or elegance but likely good with most meat fare. 84 points.

Perched high above Okanagan Lake, our winery is located among the rolling hills of Naramata Bench Road. Here we have the most inspiring views you could possibly imagine.

Perched high above Okanagan Lake, our winery is located among the rolling hills of Naramata Bench Road. Here we have the most inspiring views you could possibly imagine. Which is probably why we tend to look at things a little differently. Our engaging and, at times, offbeat approach gives a certain proud flair to everything we do. Not surprisingly, our wines consistently receive top honours at major wine competitions around the world. There’s no finer place to be greeted with a glass of great wine. Located on picturesque Naramata Bench Road, our winery offers a wine experience that’s a short detour from the expected. For starters, you’ll notice art throughout the winery. And it’s not the kind you’d typically expect to see. The best example of this is Frank the Baggage Handler. Here you can learn about our wines. Well-crafted and premium, each is styled in the sort of approachable, engaging manner you’d expect from us. If you’d like more information about our approach to winemaking, you can visit our section that’s called, surprisingly, “Our Winemaking.” Our Whites: Bantam 2007, Riesling 2008, Gewürztraminer 2008, Pinot Blanc 2008, Pinot Gris 2008. Our Reds: Cabernet Merlot 2008 , Syrah 2008 ,Reserve Malbec 2008 , Reserve Merlot 2005 , Reserve Meritage 2007. Read less
