Who doesn't love Merlot? Penticton's Painted Rock Estate Winery 2007 Merlot
($40) has all the mocha and plummy-ness you want over the holidays.
We'd sip this bold bottle in front of a roaring fire with Mr. Right.
Great for a Gift
Elegant labels, and the best Pinot Noir grapes in all the Okanagan, conspire to make the Adieu Pinot Noir from Le Vieux Pins
(their last batch of the varietal) a celebratory wine. Would also be a
fine choice for a divorce party! Order by cases of 6 ($35/bottle) at www.levieuxpin.ca for Vancouver delivery.
Get the weekend started early (like on Wednesday!) by popping a bottle of this unique sparkling Montalto Pinot Grigio ($17.99) from Italy. More complex than your usual bubbles, it has citrus and floral notes.
The new batch of Yellowtail Reserves are surefire crowd pleasers. At a recent blind tasting, we were partial to the Shiraz ($15.99), with a blackberry nose and chocolate finish.
