Weekly Wine – OKV

22 Jun

bcred2Okanagan Vineyards Select Red
Year: 2014
Canada
750 ml
13.5% ABV
$8.49 (BC Liquor)

Another B.C. wine bought in British Columbia. This one is quit good.
It has a quite nice fruity flavor but I can’t make out which fruits they are. It is a mashup.
I taste grape but that should be a given – considering that this is wine. But there are other hints that I can’t quite make out.
It hit me finally – this has a taste of one of those “more healthy” juices you buy in the super markets. The kind that are a blend of cranberry, grape, Apple and whatnot. They have no sugar added and are quite good. This has that kind of aura.
It is fitting as the bottle does not denote what grapes went into making this wine. Merlot – maybe. Shiraz – perhaps. Who knows? The bottle ain’t saying.
That being said – it is a pleasant inexpensive red wine which will be great for picnics, barbecues or other such informal gatherings.
