Just returned from our Caribbean Cruise (expect a blog post about our wine experiences on the cruise in the near future) in time to taste some new releases from Quails' Gate, one of my very favorite BC wineries:
Quails' Gate 2013 Rose ($15.99)
Strong notes of strawberry and some blueberries on the nose and palate. My favorite of their recent Rose releases, very long finish and beautiful fruitiness. 85.
Quails' Gate 2012 Chardonnay ($19.99)
Floral nose with notes of butterscotch. Creamy and rich with notes of marzipan and caramel. Excellent now and would reward careful cellaring for 3-4 more years. 85.
Quails' Gate 2011 Old Vines Foch ($24.99)
Dark and brooding, big and bold. Some earthiness and tobacco on the nose and palate. Rich and full. If you like Foch, this is for you. 83.
